Cooper Tire and Rubber Company has been headquartered in Findley, Ohio since 1919 and has grown to become the second largest tire company in the United States.

Cooper Tire and Rubber Company believe that “Life is a road trip”. They manufacture a variety of tires to assist you on your road trip whatever and wherever that may be. Click on Money saving and safety tips for a host of ideas to make your journey safer and to maximize the life of your Cooper Tires.

As a husband and father safety is a prime concern especially while in an automobile. Cooper Tire has several tips that I use to ensure the safety of my family. Their built-in “tread wear indicator,” makes it simple to monitor tread wear, or you can check it with a simple test using a U.S. penny. Place the edge of the coin into the tread, with Lincoln’s head facing down. If the top of Lincoln’s head is covered by tread, there is at least a minimum acceptable amount of tread. If the top of his head is entirely visible, it is time to replace the tire. Bald tires can skid and slide on pavement, and are more likely to be damaged by potholes and other road hazards. Tire tread should be at least 2/32 of an inch deep, and tires should be replaced immediately if worn past this measurement at any location on the tire.

Practicing good driving habits will help keep your family safe as well as prolong the life of your tires. Observing posted speed limits, avoiding fast starts and stops, and driving around rather than through potholes are examples of driving habits that will maximize your tire mileage and protect your family.

Checking your tire pressure at least monthly or more often during significant temperature changes will help your tires last longer. Having your tires rotated at least every 6000 miles will ensure even tread ware.

Properly maintaining your Cooper tires is a great way to make sure that your “road trip” is enjoyable and safe for you and your family.
