'Accurate Air Pressure' activities, which are traditionally organized every year by Michelin, continue this year without slowing down. In the 6 organization ildegerçekleş Turkey in general, drivers are told the importance of correct air pressure in tires for safe driving.
Michelin's düşük Correct Air Pressure üc event, which has been carried out since the 2004 in order to inform drivers against the dangers caused by low air pressure, continues this year without losing speed. 14. In the year of the organization, Michelin officials who are experts in their field meet the consumers at the contracted BP Station in the province of 6 and raise awareness about the right air pressure in the tire.
8 Launches with Manisa in June and 29 'Right Air Pressure' activities will end in Kocaeli in June, aiming to raise drivers' awareness. Throughout the activities, drivers can take a few minutes to maintain the correct air pressure in the tire, which can significantly prevent traffic accidents.
Within the scope of the event, Michelin's Expert Teams; It will meet with drivers in 18-19 June in Antalya Merkez and Muratpaşa, 21-22 June in Adana Merkez and Kurttepe, 27-28 June in Istanbul Avcılar and Ümraniye and 29 June in Kocaeli Körfez.
Expert Michelin teams support
At the control points to be established within the scope of hava Accurate Air Pressure hava activities, tire pressures of the drivers are evaluated in a short time. After the measurement process, Michelin teams share their recommendations and adjust the air pressure of the tires of the participants according to the recommendations of the vehicle manufacturers.
Why is proper air pressure important?
The proper tire pressure, which is proportional to the long service life and fuel economy, ensures a safe journey to the driver and performance to the vehicle. If the tire pressure is lower or higher than necessary, this can lead to serious accidents, while adversely affecting the car's handling, tire performance and durability. For example; Low air pressures used in tires with road holding ability is reduced, while the wheel dominance leads to inconsistency. In wet conditions, the driver increases the risk of accident by extending the braking distance if the driver brakes in an emergency.
Increases fuel consumption, reduces tire life by up to% 30
The right tire pressure provides advantages in terms of fuel savings and tire life, as well as safety in traffic. The lower the air pressure, the higher the rolling resistance of the tire. While the balance of the resulting energy loss by the engine causes more consumption, low air pressure leads to rapid wear of the tires, reducing tire life by up to 30. Michelin warns drivers to check tire pressures regularly and recommends tires should be aired at least once a month and before long trips, based on the recommendations of vehicle manufacturers.
