Video ad has fun with 'tire dysfunction'

Do you suffer from tire dysfunction, or TD as it is known? That is the question asked by Pete's Tire Barns Inc. in a new YouTube advertisement.

"Do your tires not grip like they used to?" Asks the animated doctor in the ad. "Are they flat and unable to perform?"

The ad ends on a positive note, as a customer with lawnmower tire problems gets new tires. "Now I no longer suffer from TD!" he says.

"Our IT team developed a funny tire ad that I feel breaks the mold of the standard tire ads," says Jason Gerry, assistant store manager at the home office in Orange, Mass.

Pete's Tire Barns, with 20 combination retail/wholesale stores, is ranked 58th on the Modern Tire Dealer 100 list.
