Cooper Tire’s Tread Wisely program a tire and vehicle safety program for teens and young adults, is encouraging students to check their tires as part of their back-to-school routine.

“Students make it a habit to ensure they have school supplies, books, class schedules and other tools they need to be successful in the new school year. Another important habit that should be part of the back-to-school routine is checking their car’s tires,” said Bill Geaman, Cooper Tire’s Manager of Consumer Relations. “Tires are the only thing connecting a car to the road, so ensuring they are in good shape keeps both young drivers and those around them safe. And, for those who aren’t performing regular tire safety checks, back to school is a great time to start a monthly tire safety check routine that lasts all year long.”

The free Tread Wisely app helps young drivers remember to check their tires by offering monthly reminders sent to their mobile phones. The app also includes how-to videos that show how to check tire pressure, tread depth and overall tire condition. “These are what we consider to be the three most important safety checks for ensuring your tires are in top condition – and they take just minutes to complete,” added Geaman. “Nothing can deflate the excitement of a new school year faster than tires that aren’t ready for the trip. Performing these checks can be the difference between making the first class of the morning and spending that time on the side of the road.”
