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.

How will the Cooper Tires Fall Rewards Event help you?
Well besides getting new tires I could put money down on a newer car. My 2001 van is on the way out.
I'd love to get snow tires for my husband. he has a bit of a commute (1 hour each way, daily) and I love on a mountain in Connecticut. Good tires are a MUST.
I need new tires desperately. Shopping for them isn't quite as much fun as shopping for clothes, but saying a prayer each time I get in the car isn't fun at all. The reward sounds great! It's my incentive to finally go get my tires replaced.
My husband is mostly in charge of the tires on our vehicles, but we did just put new tires on my car. Too bad there wasn't a rewards event happening when we did that. It would have been nice to save some money!
my husband needs new tires. I'll have to check out these
Woohoo, what a fabulous giveaway and just what I need! We have an old Saab that is getting to the point where we need to fix one thing or another more and more frequently! As for tires I am so grateful my hubby keeps an eye on them regularly 🙂
My hubby says I will need some soon. I'll check these out.
I used to be really bad about checking my tires but my van has a gauge that checks the tire pressure when it's running. It's been quite a help!
This is a fabulous giveaway. My hubby has always taken care of our tires so I have no idea what to even look for, next time I'll mention these to him. $5000, there is a lot we could do with that!
My tired are checked twice a year by the garage. Bonus to living in Canada I suppose where you have 2 sets of tires based on snow or no snow. I never check the air pressure but our van does have a sensor that tells me if the tires need air which is why I don't check them myself.
Great tips, which reminds me. I'm in dire need of need tires.
We are actually actively getting prices on 4 new tires for my husbands car. But there are a few other things we need to do with his car. This prize would take care of it all!

We replace ours every 2 years, too bad I didn't know about this program when I put new A/T tires on my truck.
I suck when it comes to car maintenance. I don't change my own tires, in fact I had them done in June (all four were replaced) it was by an anonymous donor so knowing I didn't have the money I accepted it. Truth is even if I wanted to do it I don't think I'd have the guts to change my own. Not since High school when my dad tried having me do our truck, later that afternoon we'd discover I didn't tighten the nuts enough and they'd end up in a ditch on the way to meet me at a track meet. Ever since I don't do stuff like that. Now I do need to get my oil done.
Good tires are so essential. I bought cheapos before and the ride was dreadful.
Good Tires are a MUST! You must not buy cheap when it comes to your tires.
I just had new tires put on the car and need to take good care of them. Thanks for the reminder and sharing this event!
Great offer! We need to get new tires soon.
This is perfect timing. We actually need new tires.
I currently have Goodyear tires, but I have heard a lot of good about Cooper tires, too!
I am TERRIBLE at keeping track of when my tires need to be changed...which means, it's almost definitely time now.
Tires can be so expensive but are an absolute necessity, so taking advantage of a sale like this would be awesome!

I'm like you that I rarely give my tires a second thought unless they look like they are going flat. I need to be more conscientious about that. The sweepstakes is going to be quite a win for someone. There used to be a Cooper Tires factory near me.
Good tires are essential for safety - this is a wonderful giveaway. Fortunately I have a company car so no need to shop them myself 🙂
We are in need of new tires on our SUV before the winter weather hits. I will definitely have to check this out!
Sounds like a great program!
We are in need of snow tires for our second car. Will definitely consider Cooper Tires. Thanks!
I've got to be honest... I've never looked at our tires. I just assume that my husband's all over that. I'll let him know about this rewards event. Who knows, maybe it's time to change them?
