Cooper Tire conducts tire safety checks

Cooper Tire conducts tire safety checks

As part of its Tread Wisely programme, dozens of employee volunteers from Cooper Tire & Rubber Company will descend on high schools in May 2019 to conduct three-point tire safety checks within the parking areas of the schools, measuring the inflation pressure, tread depth and checking the overall condition of the tires on the cars of students, teachers and administrators. The drive will be held in three communities where the company operates major facilities-Findlay, Ohio, Texarkana, Arkansas and Tupelo, Mississippi. The Cooper experts will conduct the safety checks and leave each participating driver with a written assessment of the health of their tires as well as additional tire safety tips and information from the Tread Wisely programme.

The effort is timed to take place in advance of National Tire Safety Week, a programme of the U.S. Tire Manufacturers Association (USTMA), which runs May 20 through Memorial Day, May 27. This year’s USTMA National Tire Safety Week theme and hashtag is #knowyourroll. The initiative takes place just as the summer driving season kicks off, sending teens out on the road more frequently as they travel to sports practices, summer jobs, camp experiences and to meet up with friends.

“Cooper is committed to safety as a priority,” said Bill Geaman, the company’s Manager of Consumer Relations. “Tires are the only thing connecting vehicles to the road, and that’s why it is critical for drivers—especially those new to the road—to understand how important tire safety is and to know how to conduct their own tire safety checks at least once a month. Cooper has hundreds of dedicated tire experts who serve as employee volunteers year-round in our communities around the globe to share tire safety information with young drivers,” he added.
Approximately 690 vehicles, or 2,760 tires, will be checked by the Cooper volunteers at three schools. The Tread Wisely app is available for download from the App Store (iOS) or Google Play Store (Android).
