Desert Rat Off Road Centers started over 40 years ago in 1975 when the head Rat and lifelong 4x4 aficionado Mike Furrier decided he wanted more out of life than just selling tires in the family tire business. The first load of 4x4 products actually came from off-road pioneer, Dick Cepek who was a friend of the Furrier family from the tire business. Desert Rat Off Road Centers began in the showroom of one of the Jack Furrier Tire and Auto stores in Tucson and has since expanded to include multiple shopfronts in the local community and surrounds.
This is a family run business and not a giant corporation run by bean counters. The difference is we strive to provide quality parts (in stock) that work, not just stuff that looks good on some nerd's spreadsheet. When you contact the Rat, you’ll get an off-road enthusiast, not 10 prompts trying to get rid of you and your questions!
Got any questions, just call. If we don't see you in store we'll see you on the trail.
