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

Thank You, Veterans!

We want to take a moment to thank all veterans for their service to our country. Please ask for a 10% military discount anytime you are at either of our locations.

The TireZoo in Anoka will be closed all day on Saturday, October 28, 2017 for the annual community celebration of Halloween and festivities.

10 Tips for Traveling with Kids

Traveling with KidsWe care that you have safe tires on the road so that your traveling experiences can be as pleasant as possible and worry free. Before traveling with kids, check over your tires to make sure there are no issues including bulging, uneven wear, and/or low tread. Check to make sure your tires are properly inflated too. If you want us to take a look at your tires and let you know if anything needs to be fixed or replace, stop in. 

10 Tips for Traveling with Kids

  1. Pack travel friendly snacks that are easy to eat in the car. We have a Pinterest board set up and dedicated to lots of ideas for snacks while traveling: Travel Snacks
  2. Regardless of the time of year, dress in layers. Whether you are running the heat or the air conditioning, everyone is either hotter or cooler than the rest. Having short sleeves, long sleeves, and a blanket along will keep the whining hopefully at a minimum.
  3. Have wet wipes and hand sanitizer along to make minor messes and clean up a snap.
  4. Leave special blankets or stuffed animals in the vehicle when you stop to take a break. That reduces your chances of leaving something important and irreplaceable accidentally behind.
  5. Have a garbage bag or container along.
  6. Plan some travel games and activities, including some that will be new to the kids. We have a Pinterest board with plenty of travel ideas: Road Trip Entertainment
  7. Look ahead and plan a few kid-friendly stops along the way including family friendly restaurants, outdoor parks, and children’s museums.
  8. If installing car seats isn’t an issue, consider mixing up the seating arrangements throughout the trip for everyone to experience a different vantage point.
  9. Consider a family game that all can play, including the driver such as trivia questions, Scategories, Would You Rather, and other read aloud games.
  10. Print a map of your travel plans, and include stars of start and finish. When you get asked “how much farther”, it’s easier to show kids on a map where you are and help them with timing of the next stop, etc.

Closed for Labor Day 2017

Both locations of the TireZoo will be closed on Monday, September 4th for Labor Day!

Planning a Road Trip

planning a road tripAre you planning a road trip this summer? Whether your are a seasoned road “tripper” or you’re heading out on your first long road trip ever, a bit of planning can be the difference between a great experience and a week you’d like to forget.

Tips for Planning a Road Trip

  1. Start early. Make reservations and appointments ahead of time.
  2. Get your oil changed and check over your tires. Tell your mechanic you’re planning a road trip so any issues can be addressed.
  3. Consider an app like Roadtrippers that lets you plug in your starting point and final destination, and then gives you points of interest along the way, including hotels, attractions, and natural wonders.
  4. Check out our Pinterest boards organized to provide ideas for “Road Trip Entertainment” for kids and restless riders, as well as good “Travel Snack” ideas. 
  5. Here is a .pdf link to our travel scavenger hunt you can print off.
  6. Plan some ways you can save money on your road trip.
  7. Ask friends and family who have been to places along the way for their recommendations of where to stay and what to visit. 

If you need help checking the safety and condition of your tires before you head out on your road trip, stop by the Tire Zoo in Bloomington or Anoka, Monday through Saturday. Safe travels!

“I’m kind of a novice tire guy. These guys were friendly, knowledgeable, and quick. I told my gearhead buddy what I paid for them installed and he thought I was kidding. Needless to say, he went shortly afterwards. Not sure how these guys pull it off, but my entire family goes out of their way to come up here. We live in Burnsville. Thanks Tirezoo!” Reno via Google

Five Stars from RJ on Google Local Reviews

“Had a rear tire fixed and couldn’t be happier with the experience. Fast and easily the best price around. I highly recommend this place.” Osbourne cox via Google

“Excellent service. Excellent prices. Saved me $450 by fixing a tire other mechanics at corporate shops said needed to be replaced along with the other three for even wear. Fact: Tire shops can even the wear on tires to match the level of wear on your other three. This place was honest and just plugged the hole instead of trying to sell me a new or used one. I know were I’ll be going when time comes for tire replacement. Thanks TireZoo!” SavyConsumer via Google

“Super fast service!” Michael via Google

“Purchased wheels at a great price!” Troy via Google

“Great tires at a great price. I would definitely check them out next time I need tires just because of the price, but because of how well they’ve taken care of me after the sale I won’t even shop around, I will just buy tires from them, they are MY tire guys.” Mike via Google

“I was amazed. I needed a couple of used tires for an old utility trailer. I was taken to the used tires and shown the options. After making my selection, I was told the exact price and that they would be ready in 10-15 minutes. I ran an errand to one store and they were ready. I am exceptionally pleased with the service and the price. I will tell my friends!” FlashGorden via Google

“Thought I needed a new set of 4 tires. I gave them a call and they had my tire with a similar (50%) tread depth. Cost me 10% of what a new set would have cost. The guy said it would take about 45 minutes to get the car in and get the tire on….I was out of there in 20 minutes. Very happy!” Jonanthan via Google

“Tire Zoo is a great shop with good service and good pricing! I have recommended to everyone that says they need tires! Every time I just drop in they take care of me right away, with no appt. THANKS TIREZOO!” Deni via Google

“Great service and prices. I had new tires put on my car very quickly with no appointment.” Srebla via Google

“Best Prices, Best Selection, and Best Customer Service in Minnesota! Since I know very little about tires, I thought I would be taken advantage of and be sold the most expensive tires (which has happened in the past at Discount Tires), but after explaining my driving situation and needs for my tires (high mileage/low cost) I was offered a variety of sets of tires that met my requirements and a knowledgeable explanation of how each could benefit my commute. Not only did I get a great set of tires, but quick mounting and balancing, and friendly, knowledgeable service! I will be back for new tires on my wife’s car very soon and recommend Tire Zoo/All Season Tire to all my friends and family….. I never thought I would be so excited about purchasing tires!” Kyle via Google

“You guys are awesome! Thanks for making a stressful situation so easy! Gonna tell everyone I know about you! Thanks for being such a trusted place.” Dawn S. via Facebook

“My son’s minor mishap bouncing off a curb caused rim and wheel damage. I was VERY pleased with the repair costs and service from your Bloomington facility. It was one of those times I was stressed yet couldn’t have been happier with my experience with you. Thank you!” Randy W. via website

“Wow, fast service at a great price. Check Tire Zoo first!” Tom via Google

“I needed new tires for my VW Jetta. Last time I purchased new off-brand tires and paid $1,000. This time I went to TireZoo and got a set of Michelin tires with 75% of the original tread wear remaining for $300. Not only did I save money, but the staff had me in & out in about 45 minutes. I love these guys!” Brian T. via Facebook

“I just bought used tires for the first time in my life, and I can’t believe what I’ve been missing. The tires I bought are like-new and have 30,000+ miles left on them. I saved some significant money and have the peace of mind that the help at the TireZoo know what they are doing and stand behind the product and service. Best of all, people will stop telling me that my tires are bald. πŸ™‚ Thanks TireZoo in Bloomington!” Beth G.

“I was in serious need for new tires but could not bring myself to spend that kind of money. A friend recommend I check out tirezoo.com. I got four new “used” tires, 85% tread life for a great price. And, they got them installed and balanced in 42 minutes. How cool is that. Never buying new tires again!” CanadianDude via Google

“My wife and I have used All Season Tire for the past 10 years when purchasing both new and used tires and also for our tire repair needs. There is never pressure to purchase the most expensive tires that you often will find at 99% of all other tire shops. They outfit your vehicle with superior quality tires that also fit into your budget, they take the time to explain everything to you and answer your questions, and serve all of their customers with honesty and integrity. We plan on using them for many years to come.”  Brian J.

“You guys are the greatest tire distributors in the history of the planet.” SM via Fan Page

“Fastest most professional service in town” AA via Google Reviews

“We have been outfitting mine and my families tires with All Season/TireZoo for years. Their knowledge of what you need when you explain what you do with your vehicle is second to none. Forget being sold the top of the line tire to pad commissions, when a $70 Radial is all you need. I seriously couldn’t recommend these guys higher.β€Ž” TM via Google Reviews

“I don’t live nearby anymore but still go back every time. The used tires are super cheap and reliable. When I got one today it was mounted and ready to roll in under 10 minutes.β€Ž” J via Google Reviews
