For over 60 years Big Chief Tire has upheld a reputation of trust and great service in our community. That would not be possible without our dedicated, hardworking, and skillful team members. 

This month we are spotlighting a team member who has been with us for 11 years and counting. Robert Ables is a compassionate and professional service technician at our westside location

Get to know Robert and say hello the next time you come by our store off Normandy Boulevard.

Robert’s Background

Robert grew up in Arkansas before moving to Jacksonville in 1987. His entire life has been filled with cars, fascinated by them and working with them for years. 

After moving to Florida, he met someone at church who worked at a local tire shop, Big Chief Tire. He encouraged Robert to apply for a job there, and he is so glad he did. Robert loves working at Big Chief because he is always treated with respect. His managers understand that he is a human being, not just an employee.

What Robert Does in His Free Time

The great outdoors is Robert’s favorite place to be. He loves hunting or doing anything that allows him to enjoy the beautiful Jacksonville, Florida weather. 

Another fun fact about Robert is that he is an avid jiu-jitsu fighter. Additionally, since his grandson is a bull rider, he enjoys going to the rodeo to cheer him on.

Robert’s Dream Car and Why

While growing up in Arkansas, Robert first learned how to drive in a classic 1966 Ford Pickup. To this day, that is his dream truck. 

Great team members like Robert at Big Chief Tire have been able to uphold our reputation of great service for over 60 years. Our hope is that when visiting one of our local tire shop locations, you see a familiar face that you can trust with one of your biggest investments: your vehicle.

Finding a trustworthy auto mechanic in Jacksonville, FL with so many to choose from can be tricky. But at Big Chief Tire, it is easy. Make an appointment at our Westside location and be sure to say hi to Robert.
