BOUND BROOK, N.J. (May 14, 2014) — STS Tire & Auto Centers is promoting a contest that will award one family the chance to take a road trip with stops in Hershey Park, Pa.; Washington, D.C.; and Virginia Beach, Va.
The Great American Road Trip prize package—for up to seven family members—includes hotel accommodations (three rooms maximum per night for six nights), theme park tickets, and gas and food allowances.
“For many families, a favorite spring and summer pastime is packing up the car and hitting the road to discover all the places our beautiful country has to offer. As life has gotten more and more hectic, sometimes it's difficult to make that happen, but it's important for families to stay connected. If we can help make these trips a reality, and also make them safer, than we have done our job,” said STS President Bill Caulin. “We can't emphasize enough how important vehicle maintenance and tire care is when planning a trip. We encourage our customers and neighbors to visit their local STS and have their cars inspected by our highly skilled technicians before getting on the road.”
Contestants can register between May 15 and July 6 online on the STS website or text STSWIN to 55000 (standard rates apply). There is no purchase necessary, but contestants must be a legal U.S. resident and 18 years of age. One winner will be picked at random from all entries, according to STS.
The dealership said it is offering its complimentary 28-point tire and vehicle inspection throughout the Great American Road Trip promotion at all its 150 locations in New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
Titan International and the United Steelworkers union have petitioned the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce seeking relief from OTR tire imports from China, India and Sri Lanka. What’s your opinion?
|I wholeheartedly support their action – something needs to be done.||
|I think it’s a bad idea that could inevitably tie the hands of domestic tire makers.||
|I oppose any duties against tire importers—they only raise costs for distributors and make it harder to obtain inventory.||
|I’m kind of on the fence and not sure what’s right, but need more information before deciding.||
|I don’t really care whether or not relief is granted.||
