The benefits of optimum tyre pressure are clear: According to neutral tests, the ideal tyre pressure saves up to 8% fuel and increases area coverage by up to 8%.* Tractive power can also be increased by up to 10%.* Furthermore, it reduces soil compaction and therefore keeps yield losses at a minimum. When driving on the road, a higher air pressure ensures more stable handling and also lowers roll resistance, which reduces fuel consumption and tyre wear.
