Michelin Fill UP With Air is a quarterly campaign done around South Africa, aiming to help drivers keep their tyres at the correct pressure.
The event shows drivers the importance of maintaining the correct tyre pressure. In addition to increasing fuel consumption, driving with the wrong tyre pressure can affect a car’s handling, posing a safety threat and can also put more stress on the vehicle’s steering and suspension components, leading to possible wear and additional maintenance costs.
Not only does driving with the wrong pressures have an effect on the environment, but it can seriously compromise safety. Tyres that are under inflated can cause poor handling on the road and potentially lead to serious accidents and put lives at risk. There are lots of ways that people can help to cut their carbon footprint and keeping tyres at the correct.
