Chris | Owner
"I've been a certified ASE Master Technician since 2008. I am mostly retired these days (still an odd job here and there) but wanted to stay involved with my industry.
From my experience I know lots of people could benefit from just having some basic understanding of car maintenance and tools, so I decided to provide tons of helpful guides for automotive beginners!
I generally make sure the site is covering the correct topics and our Team has everything they need."
Damaso | Writer
For years Damaso worked as a technical advisor assisting car dealerships, tire shops, and even the plants of Toyota and Mitsubishi that operate in his country.
He has over 25 years of experience reporting on topics ranging from DIY jobs, technological analysis, automotive news, and more.
He is a wealth of information and a valued member of our team.
Shawn | Writer
An ex-salesman of industrial equipment, Shawn used to drive nearly 60K miles a year just commuting to clients. He also has a little project Miata build going on the side.
Safe to say, Shawn has slain a few tires in his days. He knows all about horrid road noise, hydroplaning risks, and how much damage a bad alignment can do to your wallet.
He enjoys helping us out and Chris always values his opinion when designing something new for the website.
Violet | Editor
A recent college grad from UT, Violet now holds a Bachelor's in Journalism and is an astute editor. Her father loves his classics so she's been around cars since she was a toddler. She makes sure our site is clean as a whistle and everything makes sense!
Steven | Brand Manager
Known as the “web guy” behind the scenes, Steven keeps the technical aspects up and running and has been our brand manager since the early days. His favorite hobbies include golf and spending time with his basset hound, Hank.

How Does This All Work?
When it comes to writing in-depth reviews, the process can be quite the undertaking. We begin by understanding the tire market and the different terminologies and trends.
Once we find the best tires to review, we band together to write comprehensive articles and buyer guides that will intrigue our audience and add value to your shopping experience.
We polish up the articles, provide edits where necessary, and publish them for your reading pleasure.
How Are Products Chosen?
Choosing tires to review is a complex process because we can't necessarily test them all. This means that we have to scour the internet and find information from manufacturers, forums, and other sources and compile them in one, easily digestible piece. We choose products that are trending or that other car-enthusiasts recommend.
Some of our favorite forums to look through are Autos.ca and Automotive Forums.
Who Writes Content?
Our content writers are all car enthusiasts that drive different types, makes, and models of vehicles so that we can offer a wide variety of reviews to our audiences. The content creators that we’ve chosen are passionate about writing and scouring the website for information.
How Does Drive 55 Make Money?
How we make money can be a little confusing for people that are new to the scene. We can make money through ads, but we make most of our money through Amazon Affiliate links. The Amazon Affiliate program offers us a small commission when our audience purchases through the links we share on our website.
Do We Get Paid to Review Products?
No, we do not. We have been sent products with the purpose of reviewing them, but we haven't been explicitly paid to review products.
Do Brands Pay Us for Better Rankings?
Absolutely not. We have built a strong rapport with our audience, and at Drive 55, we're aware that that would damage this. Our online platform's values are most important to us, and we wouldn't do anything to jeopardize it
