Are you ready for winter driving? Take a listen to the clip below of Dustin Pedroia and Paul Sullivan discussing driving in the snow!
We have plenty of All-Season and Snow Tires in stock should you be in need. Give us a call at 877-592-TIRE! Take a look at our Top 3 Winter Driving Tips below:
Check Your Tires: Your tires are the only thing keeping your car connected to the road, so you want to make sure that your tires can handle whatever surface changes (snow, ice, slush, etc) you may encounter.
Prepare Your Windshield: Having good wipers is essential to keeping your windshield and visibility clear. Make sure you’ve topped off your windshield wiper fluid and have an extra bottle of fluid in the car, just in case!
Fill It Up: You’ll go through more gas during the winter season. If the temperatures really drop, you could be at risk for gas line freeze up. Try to keep your tank from dipping below the halfway point throughout the winter.
You can stop by any Sullivan Tire for a free tire inspection and air pressure check, to ensure that you’re ready and prepared for any impending road changes.
Sullivan Tire is proud to be the keynote sponsor for the AA Eastern League All-Star game! The game is to be held on July 15th at Hadlock Field in Portland, Maine! The home town Portland Sea Dogs are sending five players to the All-Star game which is tied for the most by any team! The game starts at 7:00 pm, but there are far more fun events taking place throughout the day! The gate opens at 3 o’clock!
Sullivan Tire will have two tables set up where we will be handing out auto service coupons, and you can enter to win 2016 Sea Dogs Season tickets! Customers can also enter to win the 2016 Sea Dogs season tickets at either of our Portland stores, located at 333 St. John Street or 1008 Brighton Avenue.

The Sea Dogs prospects are very promising and hope to make it up to their MLB affiliate, the Boston Red Sox, one day. Sea Dog alumni include Hanley Ramirez, Jon Lester, Mookie Betts, Blake Swihart, Jonathan Papelbon, and former AL MVP Dustin Pedroia! Don’t miss watching promising young players before they enter the big leagues! Tickets are limited, but still available at the very low and reasonable price of $16 for general admission and $10 for child and senior general admission. Bring the family down to watch the Eastern League All-Star Game presented by Sullivan Tire and Auto Service!
Sullivan Tire and Auto Service recently welcomed Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia to their new 200,000- square-foot distribution center and warehouse in Taunton, where he signed on to extend his relationship with the long-standing, family business for three more years.
Sullivan Tire and Dustin Pedroia’s eight-year relationship began during the 2008 Red Sox season. The current agreement, which runs through 2018, includes his appearance in Sullivan Tire advertising on television, radio, and in print media; it also includes the second baseman making personal appearances at Sullivan Tire functions.
“We are thrilled to have Dustin on our team for another three years,” said Paul Sullivan, Vice President of Sullivan Tire. “His strong work ethic, team spirit and family values represent the Sullivan Tire brand, and as avid Red Sox fans, we admire Dustin’s determination and grit, each and every season.”
“I’ve enjoyed working with Paul and his team at Sullivan Tire,” said Pedroia. “They are community-oriented and hardworking, and I’m happy to be extending my relationship with them.”
Dustin Pedroia took a moment to autograph the banner hanging in the Taunton warehouse as well, which celebrates Sullivan Tire’s 60th year in business.

We hope you enjoyed our Red Sox Magnet Retrospective, and we can’t wait to see what our Red Sox make of the 2014 season.
What do you think of this year’s magnet?
Sullivan Tire has been producing Red Sox Magnet Schedules since the 1980s. The first magnetic schedule was produced in 1999, and has been a yearly tradition for 15 years! To celebrate this milestone, and to get Red Sox Nation excited about the newest magnet, Fuel for Thought will be posting a Red Sox Magnet Schedule Retrospective, every day until St. Patrick’s Day, when the 2014 Magnet will be available in our stores.
2011 was the end of Fenway park’s 10 year renovation and expansion program. Throughout the project, $285 million was spent on improvements to the park. It was the Red Sox’s 111th season, and despite striving for the World Series that year, the Sox ended up imploding in September and failed to make the playoffs.
During the season, we launched “The Ultimate Baseball Showdown” between Dustin Pedroia and Jon Lester. We gave Red Sox fans the opportunity to watch, guess and enter for a chance to win the chance to take some swings against Lester or pitch against Pedroia on the field at Fenway Park!
To support the Showdown, we also launched a newly redesigned website. We updated SullivanTire.com with our popular chat support feature, tire prices and price comparison information, and promotional info! It was the first year Sullivan Tire worked with Lester, while it was our fourth with Pedroia.
Did you collect our 2011 magnet? Do you remember our Ultimate Baseball Showdown commercials? What do you think of Misty being on the magnet with Dustin? Let us know in the comments!
Last week we were in sunny Arizona filming our newest series of TV Commercials with Dustin Pedroia. Hard to believe that this is our 7th year with Dustin! We signed him when he was just a rookie, and we all know that he’s had a lot of success since then. Perhaps we are his lucky charm!
This year, we brought in a very special guest to appear in the commercials with Dustin…Boston Bruins Center Gregory Campbell! We had both players reverse rolls for a day; Dustin provided Gregory with some baseball tips and Gregory showed Dustin how to hit a puck (Yes, Dustin was on the ice!). We won’t reveal how they did, but you can see for yourself when the commercials begin airing in March.
It sure was a lot of fun making the spots. – We only wish we could have stayed to enjoy the Arizona sun a bit longer!
Best of luck to the Bruins on the rest of the season and Good Luck Dustin and the Red Sox in the upcoming season!
