A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to go on my very first press trip thanks to Michelin and Graco! The two well known and long trusted brands have teamed up to encourage parents to think beyond your normal baby safety checklist.
Have you ever considered adding new tires to your baby registry? I know it never occurred to me, but think about how much time you and your baby spend in the car. Whether it’s a quick trip to the grocery store or a road trip to visit family, the tires are pretty much the only thing between your baby and the road. Your brakes may help to stop the wheels, but the tires are the key factor in how quickly and completely your vehicle stops.
When it comes to your new baby’s safety, every stop counts.

During our time at the Michelin Laurens Proving Grounds, we tested Michelin’s tires vs. a leading competitor. We tried worn tires as well as new, trucks vs. cars, and all on a wet track. I didn’t think there would be a huge of a difference as there actually was! The Michelin tires beat out the competition every time. The difference may have only been a few feet, but when you’re stopping for a child, animal, or another vehicle, those few feet make all the difference.
