Tire Safety Week: The Aftermath

National Tire Safety Week is over. I'm sure you've all been thinking about tire safety all week while attending all those tire safety parties and events, but that's all done now. We can go back to not thinking about tire safety for another year.

Or not. You don't really have to think about tire safety year-round like I do, but it's always good to have some basic tips in mind. Here are some of the best links from Tire Safety Week 2012.

Cooper Tire partnered this year with a number of "mommy-bloggers" and "daddy-bloggers" to get the tire safety message out, offering the bloggers a set of Cooper tires for review and working with them to produce some tire safety videos.

And finally, from Nissan comes the "Easy-Fill Tire Alert System" which will now come standard on many Nissan vehicles. Essentially, the system works with the TPMS sensors to not only tell you when tires are low, but does away with the need for a pressure gauge when filling tires with air! It works by turning on the hazard flashers when air is being put into the tire, and chirping the horn when the pressure is correct. I think that's pretty darn cool.

Be Tire Safe and Happy Driving!
