Tailgating Tips for Your Vehicle

Tailgating in your most prized possession, a game worn jersey from your childhood idol that played on the 1988 championship team. It may be a little worn and tight, might smell less than desirable, and have a few food stains, but it is an essential part of your game day ritual.

Once the cherished family artifact is in its place, it’s time for face paint. You apply your teams colors with laser like precision to make sure your team spirit is adequately represented on your face. The routine must be followed in an exact order, everything must be the same each and every time your team does battle on the gridiron. It’s not a superstition, it’s tradition!

Tradition doesn’t stop with the attire oh no, everything must be the same to ensure that the football spirits show favor on your team. One minor miscue and it could cost your team the game and the season. This includes your game day feast. The standard chips and dip let you down in 2001, and those spicy wings stung your team in 2004. Let’s not even discuss the chili fiasco of 2008 or the donut disaster of 2010.

The tide turned in your favor in 2012 when you introduced team inspired sliders with special team sauces. Since that shake-up in your gameday feast, your team has seen far more victories than defeats.

Weekends full of tailgating feasts dance through your head this time of year but one very important aspect that we may neglect to address is making sure your vehicle is game day ready.

Here are 5 tips to help keep your most valuable vehicle ready to tackle the challenges of tailgate season.

Three Tips for New Tires

Shopping for new tires may not be as exciting as shopping for new clothes. While styles change for clothes, very little in appearance changes for tires. However, the one thing in common is that we try to make our clothes and tires last as long as possible.  Tire Discounters wants you to get the most out of your new tires, and clothes but mostly tires! Here are three tips for new tires to ensure you get your maximum value:

New Tire Tip: Air Pressure

Make sure to keep your tires properly inflated. Check the air pressure in each tire once a month. Under inflated tires wear faster and run hotter than tires properly inflated.
