JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Jonesboro tire company showed big support to the Harrisburg Police Department Thursday. 

Last November, Region 8 News had a story about two students at Harrisburg Elementary who designed Lieutenant Justin Kimble’s patrol car.

Since then, the students’ design came to life as it is displayed on Kimble’s car. It includes the school’s mascot.

But the Jonesboro tire shop owner at RNR Tires Express wanted to give Kimble’s ride a finishing boost.

On Wednesday, RNR tires donated an entire set of wheels and installed them in no time.

“It’s very generous, a donated the set of wheels to make it the cooler car for all the kids at Harrisburg I'm very pleased with RNR here in Jonesboro, they support law enforcement and support the community of Harrisburg,” Kimble said. “Those aren’t cheap. It means a lot to me.”

Kimble ditched the factory steel wheels that came with his patrol car and said the new aluminum wheels look a lot cooler.

“It completes the look,” Kimble said. “I appreciate it a lot.”
