This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cooper Tire. All opinions are 100% mine.
When was the last time you changed your tires? Honestly, when was the last time you gave your tires any thought? If you knew the answer to either of those, you’re probably in the minority. Most of us do the bare minimum when it comes to tires. I know that I am guilty of never checking my tire pressure. I KNOW how, and I even know where the tire pressure gauge is in my SUV, but each time Chris asks me if I’ve checked my tire pressure, I honestly can’t remember the last time I did it!
The only time I give my tires a second thought is when someone points out to me that it looks like I am getting a flat. I am usually pretty on top of things like getting my oil changed, but when it comes to my tires, I need to make more of an effort to take care of them. There are many things that cause wear and tire on our tires, from the daily commute to yearly road trips – or in our case, frequent road trips!
It’s important to keep our tires well-maintained because I often have a car full of people I love. Now that Angeline is going to get her driver’s license, it’s even more important for me to properly maintain my tires, as I need to set a good example for her and of course, I need to ensure that everything on the SUV is in prime condition when she’s behind the wheel for safety reasons!
Cooper Tire’s recommends performing monthly procedures to lengthen your tires’ lifespan such as testing the air pressure, checking wheel alignment, rotating tires, and examining the tread. These should all be performed prior to lengthy trips as well.
