To share in our success - we give back to our community:
Each year we dedicate our sales from February and March to raise money for Omni (providing community programs that strengthen youth, families and individuals) and NWSRA/SFSF (providing recreational opportunities for children and adults with disabilities). This year we gave each of these organizations $4,334.00. Over the past 26 years, we have donated over $109,000 to these two organizations in addition to supporting various other community organizations and events.

Dakota-K has been in the tire business since we opened. My dad, Neil began his career with Goodyear,
being hired right out of Wahpeton State School of Science, North Dakota.

Over the years, he passed along his interest in tires and their part in keeping us safe on the road.
We can help you find the right tire for your vehicle, and any tire related problem.

Dakota-K Auto Repair & Tire Center serves the customer that drives any car, light truck, van, hybrid, or sport utility vehicle - domestic or import - the quality conscious consumer - someone who desires a well-maintained vehicle. Our repair service is complete. We handle everything from tire repair to intermittent drivability problems to major engine repair.

We give... Peace of mind in Auto Repair - by providing:

  • Solutions to transportation problems - knowing the right questions to ask and helping customers through difficult situations.
  • The best repair solution for their vehicle and ... where needed, no repair - just the suggestion that it is time to sell.
  • Honesty, quality and consistent follow through.

We work together to create a workplace that we can be proud of.


  • Never sell something that isn’t needed.
  • Offer customers time on repairs that can wait and concentrate on what is needed now.
  • Willingly admit when we’ve made an error and work to correct it.
  • Be a problem solver, starting with yourself (ourselves) first. Avoid the tendency to blame.
  • Treat others as I (we) would want to be treated.
  • As an individual ~ I bring value to the workplace.

This was my first visit to Dakota K. Prior to this, my car was covered through dealership for my oil changes. I was familiar with Dakota K because of their Community involvement . Everyone was very friendly. They gave me a ride home until my car was ready. There was some sort expected issue with one of my tire valve covers. They took the extra step in finding the part they needed rather than going with a replacement that would have cost a lot of $$$ which I would not have anticipated. I appreciate their perseverance in finding it. This will be where I take my car in the future. Hard to find a place that has integrity and strives to make the customer happy.. I guess I saw proof of that with a full parking lot of service appointments the day I was there. Thanks Dakota K.
