>Millions of U.S. drivers fail to maintain proper tire pressure, which is not only a safety risk but also wastes gas and money. According to a study by the Rubber Manufacturers Association, 55% of vehicles on the road today have at least one under-inflated tire. According to NHTSA, only 8% of drivers check their tire pressure weekly and only 21% check monthly.
Hankook Tire is launching its “Be Safe.. Air ‘Em UP” campaign on Dec. 1, 2010 to help raise awareness and educate consumers about the benefits of proper tire pressure. Consumers can receive a free air pressure check kit and be entered to win a set of Hankook tires.
