Fill your tyres

drive safely, reduce CO2 emissions, and save fuel

Only for employees of affiliated partners

Give your tyres some air

Driving on insufficiently-inflated tyres makes driving more unsafe, consumes more fuel, makes more noise, and damages the environment. This is reason enough to give your tyres some extra air.

We are jumping into action together with the Stichting Band op Spanning foundation and other partners in South Limburg for more environmentally-friendly car use. At various locations, car tyres will be given a little extra air. You can then drive home safe in the knowledge that you have the correct tyre pressure. This saves on fuel and reduces your car's CO2 emission, giving you a good feeling for doing the right thing! 

Who can make use of this campaign? 

Drivers can indicate on the campaign days whether they want to make use of the ‘band op spanning’ (right tyre pressure) promotional offer. Taking part is easy: simply place the flyer that you receive as you enter the car park in a visible spot on the dashboard of your car. When you return to your car after work or visit, your tyres will be at the correct pressure. Please note: some campaigns are open to the public while others are exclusively for employees of the relevant organizations. 

Mark your calendar!

Schedule a regular tyre check in your calendar to make sure you're always driving safely and with the right tyre pressure. That way, you'll save on fuel costs and reduce your CO2 emissions.

Where can I find out what the correct tyre pressure for my car is?

The recommended tyre pressure for your car can be found:

  1. In the instruction manual of the car.
  2. On the inside of the fuel cap.
  3. On a sticker in the door frame on the driver's side, on the back of the sun visor, or in the glove compartment.

More information about the correct tyre pressure can be found on the website of the Stichting Band op Spanning foundation, which promotes good tyre pressure for environmentally friendly and economic driving.
