Drive safely save with Nokian-eco tires driving safely and save fuel fuel check air pressure and condition of 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. Fast pace, high summer temperatures and heavy luggage rack the tires. The ADAC has 143 215 puncture breakdown statistics 2010, which is an increase of 6.8 percent. 1359 accidents with personal injury were caused by the tyres in 2010, more than twice as many as with the brakes with 602 accidents, documented 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 the tires on nearly half (55 percent). Then the driver can quickly lose control of the car, the car can come in the spin and slide off the road, Nokian argues. The risk is still considerably larger when fully loaded.
Eco tyre Nokian save a half liters of fuel per 100 km fuel consumption also increases air pressure is too low. 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 bigger. Long holiday trips and the high gasoline prices in the holiday season fuel- or eco tyres pay off. Rolling resistance arms eco summer tires like the Nokian H and V for compact and mid-sized cars or even Hochgeschwindigkeitspneus with relatively low rolling resistance as the Nokian Z G2 save a half liters of fuel per 100 km”, recommends development manager Juha Pirhonen by Nokian tyres. 40 percent smaller rolling resistance mean six percent less fuel.
