In 1959 Jim Patterson began his career in the tire business working for a little tire shop that recapped tires. He worked his way up the ladder and took over that shop. Shorty thereafter he moved to bigger location and built a larger facility to increase the production of recapped tires. He called it Santa Ana Recap and it did quite well, because during the 60ís and 70ís recapped tires were a popular commodity. After building up the business he decided to sell it and take a break for a bit which he did in 1977. In 1980 his break was over and he began building a new tire store and this time he put his name on it. Patterson Tire was born and opened in early 1981. That same year Jimís son-in-law Gary joined in this new venture working as a technician. In 2002 Gary bought Patterson Tire from Jim. Gary continues to own and operate it to this day using the same code of ethics, of honesty and integrity that he learned from his Father-in-law all those many years. Come in today and see why Patterson Tire continues to be Orange County's favorite Tire store. Youíll be glad you did!
