WICHITA — Tracy's Automotive owner Mike Ryno has purchased the former Marine World building to start a new Tire Pros franchise.
"We already do tires, we just want to get into it a little bit more," Ryno says.
"If it's on a car, we basically do it," he says of his business.
Tracy's is on the southwest corner of First and St. Francis. Ryno's new building is on the southeast corner.

"We're just getting it ready to use," he says of the space. "We did a ton of cleaning and painting."
Ryno says going with the Tire Pros franchise allows for several things, such as new warranties.
"We get some better pricing on some tires, and we're able to give better discounts because of that," he says.
Look for Ryno's new business to open in about a month.
