As part of its Tread Wisely program, which is a global tire and vehicle safety initiative, Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. will have dozens of employee volunteers conduct free tire safety checks for students, teachers and administrators beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday at Findlay High School.

The Cooper experts will measure tire inflation pressure, tread depth and check the overall condition of tires for participating drivers parked in the school lots.

Each driver will receive a written assessment of the health of their tires as well as additional tire safety tips and information from the Tread Wisely program.

“Cooper is committed to safety as a priority,” said Bill Geaman, Cooper’s manager of consumer relations.

“Tires are the only thing connecting vehicles to the road, and that’s why it is critical for drivers to understand how important tire safety is and to know how to conduct their own tire safety checks at least once a month.”
