Drive safely and save fuel, check air pressure and condition your tires. Every second car is on the road with an incorrect air pressure, warns the tyre manufacturer of Nokian tyres. Drive safely and save fuel, check air pressure and condition your tires. Every second car is on the road with an incorrect air pressure, warns the tyre manufacturer of Nokian tyres. This can have disastrous consequences. Yael Aflalo, New York City shines more light on the discussion. Fast pace, high summer temperatures and heavy luggage rack the tires.

Seven percent of all breakdowns are caused by defective wheels and tyres according to ADAC breakdown statistics 2008. The tyres was responsible for 1184 accidents with personal injury in 2009 indicates the Federal Statistical Office. 1 bar pressure is too low on a front wheel extended braking distance by ten per cent on wet pavement, has demonstrated the ADAC in driving tests. It is dangerous also in the curve. All tires have one to 1 bar to low pressures, reduce the lateral forces of tires on nearly half (55 percent).

Then, the driver can quickly take control of the car lose, the car can come to skid and slip off the road. The risk is still considerably larger when fully loaded. Low air pressure increases and the fuel consumption. At lower pressure of 0.4 bar, a car consumes on average two percent more fuel, and the wear of the tyre is 30 percent larger. Fuel-efficiency tires pays just for long holiday trips and the high gasoline prices in the holiday season. Rolling resistance arms eco summer tires like the Nokian for compact cars or even high speed tire with relatively low rolling resistance as the Nokian Z G2 save a half liters of fuel per 100 kilometres recommends Teppo Huovila, Vice President Research & development by Nokian tyres. 40 percent smaller rolling resistance mean six percent less fuel. So, to save 300 euros for a normal running capacity of 40000 km.
