Last week, the folks at Yokohama were kind enough to put together a Ride and Drive for Sullivan Tire Employees and I was one of the lucky participants.
The day started with complimentary coffee and donuts before we got some detailed information and education into the types of products Yokohama sells. We covered a wide range of tires, from the Avid family (the Ascent and ENVigor) Advan family (Sport Z.P.S., S-4, Sport V105, Neova and AD48) the S. Drive tire, the Parada Spec-X and the Geolander family of tires.
After absorbing all of that knowledge, we were able to test out different tires on the Scion FR-S. The four cars each had a different set of Yokohama tires installed, and we tested them in ascending order of performance. A race track of cones had been set up, and we had a chance to ride in the passenger seat before trying our hand (and foot) at racing the course.
Riding as a passenger felt longer than when I was racing around the cones as the driver. My first ride was pretty successful; I made a decent time and was feeling rather confident about my second run… a little *too* confident it would seem.
As I was about a quarter of my way through my second race around the race track, I took a turn too fast, knocking over multiple cones as I drove completely off the course. I cut back through more cones to get back on the track, all while yelling “I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” to my laughing co-pilot.
Once I finished the loop, we discovered that of the many cones I knocked over, two had gotten stuck under the car, and dragged along for the remainder of my race.
Needless to say, I was much more focused on accuracy than speed during my third and fourth runs.
After everyone had completed test driving the four different tires, the top five fastest male racers, and top three women racers, all competed one more race to see who was the ultimate winner.
Everyone at the Ride and Drive had a great experience. Not only was it fun to race around the track, but we could actually feel a difference in the way the car handled the road on each set of tires. It really enhanced our understanding, and appreciation, of the products we’d learned about earlier in the day.
Thanks again to Yokohama for inviting Sullivan Tire to participate in such a fun event!

Today marks the first day of our Sudbury location’s fundraiser to benefit the Sudbury Military Support Network. Sudbury Military Support Network (SMSN) is a non-profit organization designed to:
- Support Sudbury residents serving in the Military as they prepare to deploy, serve or return from military service.
- Develop avenues to Honor and Recognize all past and present Sudbury Service Military Service Personnel.
- Establish a network of Support for Families of Military Service Personnel.
- Raise Awareness in the community about Sudbury residents who have or are currently serving in the military.
Congress has declared the month of May as Military Appreciation Month. Locally, SMSN works with area merchants and local supporters to honor hometown heroes throughout the month of May. The SMSN secures discounts and donations to distribute to families, holds a military family BBQ event and participates in the Memorial Day Parade, hoping to put names and faces to those who serve our country.
From now until Saturday, May 11th, Sullivan Tire will donate $5 per tire sold at the Sudbury location to the SMSN. Additionally, we will provide our customers with complimentary coffee, bagels and breakfast pastries from Sudbury Coffee Works on Saturday, May 11th as a thank you for their participating on support of this great local organization.
Back in February, the employees at our location in Norwell, MA found an owl at the store. Our employees brought the owl, who had a broken wing, to the New England Wildlife Center in South Weymouth, MA.
This past week, we received this great thank you note from the Wildlife Center on the status of the owl.
Thank you for taking the time to help one of New England’s wild animals in need. Without caring and concerned citizens, such as you, we would be unable to help sick and injured wildlife. We are happy to report that the Northern Saw-Whet owl you admitted to the hospital was released!
The New England Wildlife Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to the treatment and care of injured wildlife, and natural science and biology education.

It’s a great time to save on tires at Sullivan Tire!
The 2013 Red Sox Calendar Magnets have been shipped to our locations and will be available to the public during St. Patrick’s Day weekend!
Sullivan Tire has been producing Red Sox schedules for our customers since the 1980s. “The original paper schedules were practically as big as the front page of the Boston Globe,” recalls Paul Sullivan. Now, the magnet schedules are much smaller, and fit perfectly on any Sox fan’s refrigerator.
1999 was the first year of magnetic Red Sox Schedule, and in 2002, the magnet was produced in Spanish as well. In 2004, an English, Spanish and Portuguese version of the magnet was created. It was a historic year for the Red Sox, who broke an 86 year curse to win the World Series, and Sullivan Tire celebrated the event by producing a limited edition World Series Champs magnet as well. Sullivan Tire Co.’s 50th Anniversary was commemorated on the 2005 magnet, and 2009 was the first year the magnet featured Red Sox 2nd baseman and Sullivan Tire spokesman, Dustin Pedroia.
This year, the magnet shows some very young baseball enthusiasts on the field at jetBlue at Fenway South in Fort Meyers, FL and includes the spring training schedule as well.
Be sure to pick up your 2013 Red Sox Magnet before they run out!
They say that everybody is Irish on St. Patrick’s day and that couldn’t be more true at Sullivan Tire!
Tomorrow, we’ll be handing out Irish soda bread at our Rockland and Abington locations, while supplies last. ”We thought it would be a fun way to celebrate the holiday and thank our customers.” says Mark Gillard of the Marketing Department. Additionally, we’ll be participating in the Abington St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday. Check our our blog post from last year for pictures of the parade and more info.
From our family at Sullivan Tire to yours, we wish you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day weekend!
