El Sobrante Wheel & Brake

The Business of the Year award for 2017 goes to Lyle Miller, owner of El Sobrante Wheel and Brake, located at ​4040 San Pablo Dam Rd. This is one of El Sobrante’s oldest businesses, located in El Sobrante for almost 45 years.

El Sobrante Wheel and Brake was established in 1974 by Lyle’s dad, Lyle Miller, Sr. In 1987, Lyle took over the business with his brother, David. Then about a year ago, David retired to Bend, OR, and Lyle was left on his own…a one-man operation!

Despite the demands of the business, Lyle does enjoy life beyond his work. He
cofounded the El Sobrante Historical Society with Maurice Abraham, Donald Bastin and Steve James, and is an officer and Board Member of the non-profit Society. And, judging from Lyle’s many Facebook posts, it’s clear he enjoys lots of fun times with friends and his wife, Jackie. A favorite activity is long road trips on his new Harley. He has helped a lot with the Stroll over the years as well.

Congratulations to Lyle Miller of El Sobrante Wheel and Brake!
