ERJ staff report (DS)
Brussels -- Ahead of the great holiday rush to the coast and mountains, Bridgestone said 63 percent of all vehicles it inspected need further maintenance.
Bridgestone Belux and Bridgestone Europe joined forces on 9 to 12 June at Interparking and the Woluwe Shopping Center in Brussels, to conduct the biggest tyre survey ever organised in Belgium, and today they announce the results of these inspections of around 1,160 vehicles.
The results show:
- 63% of vehicles checked had either tyre wear or tyre pressure problems
- More than 1 vehicle in 2 (58%) was being driven with one or more tyres underinflated or overinflated (12%)
- Close on 15% of the cars had 'serious' tyre wear problems and some of these were below the legal limit for tread depth
