My Car Has New Kicks…
This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Cooper Tires and DiMe Media.
I am about to admit some things… that I am not particularly proud of.
- Until this week, I did not have the habit of checking air pressure.
- Just before Winter, I discovered that my front tires were bald and cracked.
- I then bought used tires to save money which has costed me more in gas due to poor mileage.
What I am saying is that I have put my friends / family at risk more that I would like to admit to.
What was I thinking… another “minor detail” ignored because I was too busy that could have resulted in a collision.
I was embarrassed because I consider myself a car aficionado. How could I take this for granted. How could I not pay attention to such an important detail?
Enough of that… long story short, I had the opportunity to consult, shop and install brand new tires on my car to make things right. The guys at my local Midas shop… took the time to explain things to me and actually suggested that I read some of the critical education pieces that CooperTire.com has on their website.
I did… and now my car has new kicks.
Nothing worse than buying the wrong tires… I have had to pay the consequences. Poor handling, bad mileage are some of the things that can happen. I know I have learned from experience. My friends at @coopertires educated me in what I need year round to get around the city safely. I will be hosting a FB Live tomorrow on http://www.facebook.com/sofritoforyoursoul at 4pm to share some tips in how to pick your perfect tire. Shout out to the guys at @midasmuffler in Maspeth Queens for taking such good care of me. 🚗👍🏼 #sponsored by Cooper Tires
NYC ‘s weather has been crazy lately and we just last month, we experienced all 4 season in a span of two weeks so it made sense for me to get All Weather tires especially since I do not usually drive in any extreme weather.
After all I learned, I traveled to Miami this morning and rented a Mercedes CLA and something told me to look at the tires and I realized that the tires were dangerously worn. I took the liberty of making a FB Live so that you can see for yourself how bad it was.
Check out the video and make sure to physically inspect your tires today.
Take it a step further and visit CooperTires.com to learn what I learned.
