NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nokian Tyres Inc. is launching an information campaign to help drivers keep their vehicles in working order while they might not be driving as much during the COVID-19 crisis.
Nokian Tyres is working with Charles Sanville — a.k.a., the "Humble Mechanic" — to create tips and resources drivers can use at NokianTires.com/FreshStart.
Mr. Sanville has produced a series of tips available on YouTube. Along with information from Mr. Sanville, Nokian is providing its own tire expertise, the company said.
"Cars are meant to be driven regularly, and any significant drop in usage carries risk," Steve Bourassa, director of products, said.
"As a tire manufacturer committed to safety, we feel it's important to help drivers keep their cars and tires healthy during this period of reduced activity."
Tips include advice regarding batteries, tires, fluids and driving frequency. The website provides what Nokian calls "detailed tire maintenance advice, tips for choosing the right tires, a dealer locator and entertaining video content."
