    “I had two flat tires yesterday morning and had my car towed to the Rockland location. TJ came out to the parking lot me meet when I got out of the tow truck. He then went over the tires options with me. The tires were eligible for a rebate and TJ took to the time to fill out the paperwork and print an additional receipt for the rebate. It was a great way to end day. TJ should be commended for his customer service.”

  • With New England’s wild weather on the way, it’s time to once again revisit why snow tires are a great option to help navigate the roads with confidence.  While all-season tires are a jack-of-all-trades, in order to fully realize traction capabilities, winter tires are the best option.  One common misconception is that winter tires only add value in inclement weather.

    In reality, the most significant difference a winter tire can make is when the temperature drops below 40-degrees Fahrenheit – regardless of precipitation.  Below 40-degrees an all season tire becomes stiff and inflexible.  A snow tire on the other hand has a softer rubber compound that stays malleable, allowing the tire to confidently bite the road.  The difference in rubber compounding allows winter tires to get 25-50% better traction in temperatures below 40-degrees.

    Another thing that separates winter tires from all-season tires is a deeper tread and higher lug-to-void ratio, which is the space between the tread blocks.  These features are the primary driver in improved traction in snow and slush.  Add in more sipes (the small grooves within the tread blocks) for better ice traction and snow tires truly are the best way to tackle a New England winter!

    Below you can compare the tread of the Dunlop Graspic DS-3 snow tire vs. the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max:

    So back to the question? Do you need snow tires? Here are a few reasons you might consider snow tires.

    1. You drive a rear wheel drive vehicle. Most vehicles today are either front wheel drive or all wheel drive. Rear wheel drive vehicles are notoriously bad in snowy weather. I’d highly recommend snow tires if you own a rear drive vehicle. And you should do ALL FOUR WHEELS!

    2. You own a high performance vehicle such as a BMW or Audi.

    3. You have to drive for work or you go to ski country often. Perhaps your a fire fighter or a nurse and it’s essential you get to work no matter the weather. Go with snow tires!

    4. You just want the extra confidence of driving on a true winter ready snow tire. Sometimes you just want to feel safe!

    If you think snow tires are a good option for you we have a wide selection of winter tires in stock. Some currently on a Buy 3 Get 1 free special! 

    So what’s your take? Do you use snow tires? Tell us why?

  • Shock absorbers and struts are designed to keep the wheels in contact with the road, improving cornering and braking. Though original equipment shocks have improved in recent years, many are ready for replacement in as few as 30,000 miles.

    Shocks and Struts

    The lifespan of a strut is about double that of a shock. Most people do not notice the gradual deterioration in ride quality and many shocks and struts are not replaced as often as they should be.

    Shocks and struts should be checked every 12,000 miles or when any of these symptoms are noticed:

    • Bouncy or uncomfortable ride
    • excessive body sway when cornering
    • fluid leaks from the shock or strut
    • physical damage to the shock or strut
    • nose dive when braking
    • uneven tire wear
    • tail squat when accelerating

    We install top quality Monroe struts and shocks. If you prefer a different brand we would be happy to get them for you. See our suspension experts for a ride control checkup today!

  • It’s time to get in the Halloween spirit! These snacks are cute and so easy to make! Get your Halloween party started with these no-bake treats.

    Halloween Pumpkin

    Ingredients:

    • Oranges
    • Mango sherbet (store bought)
    • Orange sherbet (store bought)
    • Pumpkin carving tools (we used the Pumpkin Masters Pumpkin Carving Kit)

    Directions:

    1. Slice off the tops of the oranges, and scrape out the flesh (save the pulp for fresh orange juice or a smoothie!)
    2. Using the carving tools, have fun creating jack-o’-lantern faces on the outside of the oranges! For inspiration, check out our free pumpkin carving templates.
    3. Break out the sherbet and start scooping. We used one scoop of mango and one scoop of orange.
    4. Replace the top of the orange, and use any excess peels to make a swirl on the lid for decoration.
    5. Serve immediately.

  • Not your average chips and dip recipe! It’s like a cheese-ball, but it’s peanut butter. With chocolate chips! YUM! Recipe courtesy of Crazy for Crust.

    Football Dip

    Ingredients:
    • ¼ cup butter, softened
    • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
    • 1 cup peanut butter (your choice; crunchy or smooth)
    • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar (up to 2 cups if needed)
    • ½ cup mini chocolate chips
    • Chocolate sprinkles or chocolate chips for the outside of the football
    • White chocolate or frosting for the football laces

    Directions:
    Cream butter, cream cheese, and peanut butter until mixed (using a hand-held mixer). Mix in vanilla.

    Add powdered sugar, ½ cup at a time, and mix until combined. (If you want a stiffer mixture, add the extra ½ cup of powdered sugar.) Mix in chocolate chips. Turn out mixture on a large sheet of waxed paper. Use your hands to form into a football shape.

    Place the waxed paper onto your serving plate. (It helps if the plate has sides…less mess!) Cover in sprinkles or chocolate chips, pressing them into the surface a little so they stick. Pipe on the laces using melted white chocolate or some leftover frosting and chill until ready to serve.

    Serving suggestion: pretzels, animal crackers, cookies, a spoon.

    Notes: If your mixture is too soft to form into a football shape, chill it for about 15-30 minutes. (The length of chilling time depends on how soft it starts.) The freezer will speed up this step.
