    I just wanted to say thank you to Travis, Dan, and Steve in your Wareham branch for helping me with an emergency situation on my car. They were very professional, and in the era of bad customer service, it was refreshing to have your guys take care of me in an amazingly timely fashion.

    The plaque on the wall about family may sometimes get overlooked, but the Wareham team obviously read it and understands its message.  I promised that my next time down I’d buy lunch for the team. I will make good on that promise.

    I am commuting from CT to the Cape to perform work on my deceased father’s home.  Knowing that you brance in Wareham is there gives me comfort in case of another emergency.

    My hat’s off to your guys on a job well done!

  • Make sure to measure your tread! A tread depth gauge is an inexpensive and effective tool for measuring the amount of tread left on your tires. Hydroplaining can occur even at low speeds if the tread is not deep enough to channel the water from under your tires. The tread depth measurement is taken in 32nds of an inch, and should be taken from the tread grooves at three different areas of the tread (inner, center, and outside).

    Helpful hints:

    • At or below 2/32″ tread depth, tires should be replaced as soon as possible.
    • At or below 4/32″, it is not uncommon to feel a significant differences in traction and grip. You should begin to think about tire replacement.

    Tread Depth

    When measuring your tread depth, it is not uncommon to have a tire that is worn out in one area of the tread, but may still have plenty of tread in other areas. It is important to remove a tire from service when any part of the tread is at or below 2/32″ measurement. Chances are, the part of the tire that is worn out is the part you need most when cornering or driving in adverse weather conditions.

    Don’t have a tread depth gauge? You can always watch our video on how to perform the penny trick or stop by any Sullivan Tire location and we can check your tread for free!

  • Who doesn’t like whoopie pies – right? This fun dessert may require some extra prep time, but it will be worth it in the end! It makes a great addition to any football gathering. Recipe courtesy of The Cake Blog.

    Whoopie Pie

    Ingredients:
    • 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) shortening
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1 large egg
    • 1 cup milk
    • 5 tablespoons cocoa
    • 2 ¼ cups flour
    • ½ teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla
    • ½ teaspoon salt

    Preparation:
    Preheat oven to 350°. Cream together shortening and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, beating well until blended. In a bowl whisk together the flour, cocoa, salt, and baking soda. Slowly beat in the flour mixture, alternating with milk, until blended. Using a cookie scoop, drop onto greased baking sheets. Then using a toothpick or butter knife to gently create points on either side of the circle, creating the shape of a football. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until firm. Cool on racks then fill with filling, below.

    Cream Cheese Frosting:
    • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 12 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
    • 1 pound (4 cups) confectioners’ sugar
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

    Directions:
    With an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat butter and cream cheese until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Reduce speed to low. Add sugar 1 cup at a time, and then vanilla, mixing until smooth and combined, scraping down sides of bowl as needed. If not using immediately, frosting can be refrigerated up to 3 days in an airtight container. Bring to room temperature again before using.

    Assembly:
    Fill a piping bag fitting with a star tip with your cream cheese frosting. Flip one of your Chocolate Whoopie Pies over so the bottom is facing up. Starting from the perimeter, frost your whoopie pie, working your way in, until the entire circumference is frosted. Gently press the bottom side of another whoopie pie on top, creating a “sandwich”. Use the remaining cream cheese frosting to pipe football laces onto the top of each whoopie pie.

    Now you’re a crafty, baking expert! Try it out and let us know what you think. Do you have any foods you’d like to see a recipe for on our next Foodie Friday? Let us know your ideas below!

    I recently had an accident and brought my car to Sullivan Tire in Bridgewater, MA. All of the employees, especially Steve, Jim and Kevin, were extremely helpful in making me feel welcome and keeping me informed on what was happening with my car. If I ever had any questions they were always happy to answer them. My car had pretty severe damage, however Kevin and the guys from Sullivan Tire got my car working like brand new in a timely manner. I am extremely pleased with how I was treated and will definitely recommend Bridgewater Sullivan Tire to everyone I know.

  • As you may know, we’re big fans of baseball here at Sullivan Tire. This summer, for the second year in a row, we took our love of baseball to a whole new level by hosting A Day at the Ball Park for our employees and their families.

    All employees who have been with the company for 5 or more years were invited to spend a day with the Pawtucket Red Sox, Portland Sea Dogs, or the New Hampshire Fisher Cats. Employees and their family members were treated to a delicious, catered BBQ lunch before each game.

    At each game, a Sullivan Tire employee had the honor of throwing out the first pitch. At the Portland Sea Dogs game it was Leo Rossignol, Manager of our Biddeford, ME location. “I couldn’t make it last year, so it was nice to be able to attend this year.” At the Fisher Cats game it was Marvin Robbins, manager of our Newington, NH location and his daughter, Madison, that threw out the first pitch. At the Paw Sox game it was Joe Comeau, of our Marlborough, MA retail location.

    Each day at the park held a fun surprise; Daniel, Emma and Roger Pearson, who attended last year’s Day at the Park in New Hampshire, had a great time with their family at the event.  They loved the food (particularly the mac n cheese) and were confident the Paw Sox would win.  Their faith paid off, as Daniel ended up catching a home run ball, and the Paw Sox went on to defeat the Bulls 7 – 4, earning a season-high fifth-consecutive win!

    The weather was perfect for each Day at the Park, and a great time was had by all!

    I’ve been using Sullivan Tire in Bedford, NH for a few years now. From previous experiences I’ve had with other businesses, it is a real fresh breath of air to deal with such an honest company. Several times I thought I needed work done that was going to cost me big time, but they found it was a simple fix and didn’t rake me over the coals. With their honesty and quick service they have got my business for life!!
