Extreme Cold and Tire Pressure

check tire pressure in extreme coldRemember to check your tire pressure. It’s easy, fast, and important! In the extreme cold temperatures in Minnesota that we’ve been experiencing, your tire pressure may drop. Some of you may notice your TPMS (Tire Pressure Monitoring System) censors indicate low tire pressure.

It’s a good thing to manually check your tire pressure and keep it according to manufacturing specs in your manual. If you are unsure of your tire pressure, have questions about the integrity of your tires and/or question if they are holding pressure, stop by and let us take a look. Better safe than sorry! 

Winter Driving Safety Tips

Winter Driving TipsWe are in the middle of winter in Minnesota. There will be snow, ice and cold weather. It is impossible to avoid it, so always keep safe winter driving tips in mind. Some tips may seem basic, but a simple refresher can be helpful as we get comfortable in our habits.

10 Winter Driving Tips:

  1. Increase your following distance. Snow and ice make stopping more difficult. Give yourself space.
  2. See and be seen. Keep snow and frost off windows, mirrors, lights and reflectors.
  3. Plan before you travel. Be aware of the weather conditions. Check 511 for road conditions, call 511 or visit www.511mn.org. Stay home if conditions are bad and you don’t need to travel.
  4. Check tire pressure. Make sure your tire pressure is where it should be for your tires and vehicle. Cold weather can cause tire pressure fluctuations.
  5. Take your time. Fast acceleration and braking can cause spinning and loss of control when driving on snow and ice.
  6. Replace worn tires. This will help give you better control in snow and ice.
  7. Don’t panic. Remain calm. If you hit icy conditions don’t brake. Try to steer straight and don’t accelerate.
  8. Pack a winter survival kit. In case you get stranded it is best to be prepared.
  9. Watch out for other drivers. You don’t have control over what other drivers do. Give them space.
  10. Give snowplows space.  Snowplows are trying to improve road conditions, but they are watching many things and have limited visibility.


These are just a few tips to remember. AAA offers a thorough list of winter driving tips to provide a refresher for the next time you find yourself driving in snow, ice and frigid Minnesota cold. Stay warm!

Five Travel Tricks with Lemon Juice

lemon travel tricks, uses for lemonWhat can be accomplished with a lemon? Quite a bit actually. The acid in a lemon is very versatile, not to mention simple and cheap. Therefore, we’ve put together five scenarios where a lemon can come to your rescue.

Lemon Travel Trick #1

There are times when your vehicle stinks. Whether you forget food under the seat or give a ride to your friend who stepped in dog poo, a lemon is a great way to neutralize the air and eliminate unwanted smell. Simply place a small bowl of pure lemon juice on the floor of the parked vehicle and leave it for as long as possible. The lemon juice will absorb the order and give a fresh scent.

Lemon Travel Trick #2

If you spilled coffee or pop on your white dress shirt on the way to work, never fear. Lemon juice works as a natural bleaching agent to remove tough stains. You can scrub a small spot directly, and/or add a 1/2 cup of lemon juice to a load of laundry to whiten whites.

Lemon Travel Trick #3

Add a few drops of lemon juice to fresh fruit slices for a simple and healthy snack for the kids. The lemon juice will prevent the fruit from quickly turning brown.

Lemon Travel Trick #4

We all try to avoid dribbling gas on our hands while filling up at the pump. The smell is strong and hard to wash out. When this happens, use a small about of lemon juice or rub your hands with a slice of lemon to remove the gas smell. Wash your hands as usual and the scent will be gone.

Lemon Travel Trick #5

When you open up the trunk and find your lunchbox from a month ago, you’re likely to consider throwing smelly and stained containers away. Lemon juice will remove smells from plastic, as well as nasty stains from red sauces, etc. Rub the juice around the container, and let it sit on the front step in the sun. Then run it through the dishwasher as normal, and watch it clean right up!

Do you have a clever use for lemons? How about a travel trick to share? We’d love to hear from you.

Closed on Thanksgiving

The TireZoo will be closed at both locations (Anoka and Bloomington) on Thanksgiving Day. We will be open regular hours on Friday, November 24. Happy Thanksgiving!


Time to Refresh the Winter Survival Kit

Winter Survival KitIf you haven’t assembled a winter survival kit yet, here’s a list of items you may want to consider keeping in your vehicle during the long, cold months. 

If you already have a winter survival kit it’s good to review a few of the contents and make sure they are useful should they be needed.

Winter Survival Items to Check if they Need Replacing

  • Food and/or water- Check expiration dates. If you don’t remove your kit during the hot months, chances are any food items are a bit funky or water got used.
  • Batteries- Batteries in flashlights, battery operated flares, etc 
  • Emergency contact numbers- have any changed?
  • Salt/sand supply- was it depleted last season? Is there enough should you need it?

Besides checking on the condition of the above supplies, make sure your other items haven’t been removed or used for another purpose. It’s important to have a shovel and jumper cables in your trunk, along with very warm blankets and winter gear. To check on conditions of Minnesota roads, you can go to MN 511
