Hit the Road and Roll Into Fall
This post brought to you by Cooper Tire.

As you know, here at Gunaxin, we drive a ton of different vehicles and we love a good road trip. In the past five years, we’ve driven all over this country to test those vehicles and bring you stories of our adventures. From our Baseball Road Trip in the North East (above), to our West Coast trip to Lake Tahoe (below), we’ve driven 1000s of miles and enjoyed every minute of it.
Sometimes we even get the opportunity to take those vehicles off the roads, which to us is even more fun than track day. Below you can see us having fun in Georgia in a full-size pickup truck. Next month we’ll be driving along the Gulf Coast, from New Orleans to Biloxi. In November we’re hitting the road again, from Baltimore to Orlando.
What do all of those vehicles, all of those road trips, and all of those miles (on-road and off) have in common? Tires. They’re often overlooked by drivers, but tires are one of the most important factors influencing a vehicle’s performance. Which is why before any road trip, we always check our tires to make sure we’re not going to run into any trouble out on the road.
The changing of the seasons makes for a convenient time to check your tires, and with Fall coming, there should be more on your to-do list than a Fantasy Football draft. You certainly don’t want to be caught off guard when the first snow storm of the season hits, and colder weather can affect your air pressure. If you find that you are in need of new tires, the good folks at Cooper are giving consumers the opportunity to roll into fall with great offers on select tires during the Cooper Tire Fall Rebate Event. From now through October 31, 2015, consumers are eligible to receive a prepaid Visa card worth up to $70 when purchasing a new set of four qualifying Cooper tires through participating dealers.
Cooper is an American company that makes a wide variety of tires to fit nearly every vehicle and need. Today we’re going to highlight three of their best-in-class products, the Discoverer SRX, a dedicated SUV and CUV tire, the Discoverer STT Pro – Cooper’s latest high performance mud tire– as well as the CS5 Touring, Cooper’s premium passenger tire.
Cooper Discoverer SRX
The Discoverer SRX is a dedicated SUV and CUV tire that is available in numerous sizes, fitting a wide range of SUVs and CUVs. The Discoverer SRX features Cooper’s innovative Wear Square, the company’s exclusive visual tread life indicator. Throughout the tire’s lifetime, the square changes shape beginning with a full square and ending with an exclamation mark when tire tread is low, allowing consumers to quickly and easily assess the approximate tread remaining on the tires. The Discoverer SRX offers a premium 65,000-mile Tread Wear Protection Warranty and a 45-Day Road Test guarantee to ensure a confident choice and smooth ride for SUV and CUV drivers.
Cooper Discoverer STT PRO
We’ve already told you that we love to go off-road, so it should be obvious that the Discoverer STT PRO is by far our favorite Cooper Tire. The Discoverer STT PRO is Cooper’s most advanced, extreme tire to date. It provides exceptional traction and performance in some of the harshest terrains. The distinctive tread design and compound provide remarkable on- the-road performance without sacrificing off-road traction. Three-ply Armor-Tek3 silica tread compound, aggressive 3-2 center rib design and side-biters make up Cooper’s advanced mud terrain tire. We’re not going to lie, they also look bad-ass, which doesn’t hurt one bit.
Cooper CS5 Touring
The CS5 Touring provides real-life performance, in real-life conditions for everyday drivers. The CS5 is crafted with leading technology and innovations that meet the needs of today’s drivers. The CS5 also features Cooper’s innovative Wear Square, the company’s exclusive visual tread life indicator. The CS5 Touring offers a premium 65,000-mile Tread Wear Protection Warranty and a 45-Day Road Test guarantee to ensure a confident choice and smooth ride. If you aren’t satisfied with your CS5 tire purchase you may return them to your original dealer within 45 days of purchase for a free of charge Cooper brand replacement only, including mounting and balancing.
