Welcome to EVtires.com, your hub for information and purchase options for your electric vehicles tires. Electric Vehicles have been around since the late 1800's. A resurgence of interest and technological breakthroughs began in the mid 2000's and we saw a turning point in the evolution and most importantly the adoption of Electric Vehicles. We felt as though the EV revolution was finally on its way and secured this domain among others.
In 2018 we felt the time was right to begin building out this site. Now in 2020 we are proud to announce our acceptance to the Tire Rack affiliate program. We feel this is the best way to provide quality EV tire information while providing a quick, convenient process to purchase and explore more information on Electric Vehicle tires.
Founder Robert McDowell was a third generation major US oil company employee. After 9/11 and the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom he founded a non-profit that supported children of fallen US troops. Working with families of the fallen created an intense desire to help wean the US off Middle East oil and fueled McDowell to launch EVtires.com as well as other EV related internet companies. McDowell also co-produced a CD featuring children of fallen troops. The CD made #8 on billboard charts and was featured on The NBC Today Show and numerous other media outlets. McDowell has met with the POTUS in the White House and two Secretaries of Defense at the Pentagon on behalf of the children. He has also met numerous Hollywood celebs and Sports stars across the USA in support of the kids of US KIA, (ie. Gary Sinise, Tom Brady, Will Smith). Children of fallen troops are an integral part of this company. A portion of EVtires™ sales will go to support children of fallen troops, (GarySiniseFoundation's - Snowballexpress.org).
