Rogue Sand Tires is a company owned and operated by Scott Estes, who has a deep love for sand dunes since his childhood. Scott's father fabricated his own sand buggy in 1964, and Scott started going to the Buttercup sand dunes with his family at the age of two. They used to sneak access to the dunes through a hole in the fence, and at that time, sand tires consisted of grooved implement tires. Scott has witnessed significant improvements in the dune buggy scene, such as the introduction of paddle tires, which was a short of a miracle in providing improvements to the duning experience.
With over 40 years of experience in the automotive and fabrication industry, Scott took over ownership of his father’s automotive/fabrication business that he had worked at since the age of eight. In 2018, he ventured to create a proprietary system to vulcanize paddle tires, seeing a need for available inventory, superior quality, and light construction. Scott and his team engineered a new paddle tire design that will once again revolutionize the industry after going through trial and error.
Scott is obsessed with creating the best tire to optimize his own duning experience, and he is committed to ensuring that his fellow duners have access to his latest designs to optimize their experience when enjoying the dune ride. Scott lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with his wife and two children and is now a proud grandfather "Pops"of two.
