What can tire consumers and drivers do to help limit the generation of TRWP?

Methods for more efficient fuel consumption when driving that achieve direct positive impact on reduction of TRWP generation (Adapted from the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers’ Association (ETRMA)):

  • Accelerate gently
  • Maintain a steady speed
  • Anticipate traffic
  • Avoid high speeds
  • Coast to decelerate
  • Maintain appropriate tire pressure
  • Avoid carrying unnecessary weight

Regional tire trade associations are working with stakeholders to address the collective question “how can we reduce tire and road wear particles without impacting the important role tires play in road safety and mobility?” – you can discover the European Tyre and Rubber Manufacturers (ETRMA) initiative on this topic, here: https://www.tyreandroadwear.com/
