About Us

WeTryTires © was created by a collection of people who found constant frustration with the limited and patchy information related to tires and cars online. 

Our Tesla

How it started

When Patrick bought new tires recommended to him by his local shop, he was very disappointed with how they performed. Having lost trust with his mechanic and feeling uneducated, he decided to dive deep into everything about tires to understand how he could help restore the performance of his pride and joy.

Michael, being a good friend and problem solver offered to assist and that’s when they realised the wide range of tires on the market. From top tier “racing slicks” tires to budget brands you wouldn’t wish upon the car of your worst enemy.

After both testing dozens of tires they finally managed to find the best tires for the Tesla, and as you can see in the photo, it’s now ready to rule the road. 

This has led to them becoming well known amongst their family and friends and the ‘car experts’. Whether it is helping Uncle Paul find a car for his daughter or recommending the best tire for a neighbour’s SUV, they have become the go to.

During their journey, while taking part in many online discussions and family dinners, they realised so many car owners are facing all sorts of issues with their tires and most of the information you can find on the internet is not tested or approved. 

ALL the content published on this website has been tested by our team or with other experts in this field. 

‘’For this project, we wanted to try and put together the content that we could never find online, or that we collected from experts along the way. We hope to succeed in this mission. We will give it 100% because I know your car is as important to you as our Tesla is to us.’’

Our Team

Patrick McCann

Musician, turned business owner but always a petrol head.

Patrick had an affinity to machines from a young age, his earliest memories involve playing with room sized train sets. Throughout school he always sort out cars for his relaxation, watching either car related TV shows, or the fast and furious franchise.

But when he passed his driving test over a decade ago, the passion ignited. His first car on the road was a VW Golf but his Toyota Celica was his true flagship. This flashy but modest sports car allowed him to understand the mechanical aspect of cars and allowed him to fall in love with detailing.

The Celica is now long gone but his car-centric hobbies are not. He regularly attends car meets, super car racing experiences and shows across the world. If he’s not busy during a summer day you’ll find him on his driveway maliciously washing his cars using only the best products.

Recently, he has been using his passions to give back to the community, buying cars heading to the scrap yard, fixing them up both inside and out, completing various safety improvements and giving them a new lease of life on the roads again.
