POMPANO BEACH, Fla., May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- O2 Media is proud to partner with Pirelli Tire North America to drive awareness about tire safety for women in support of National Tire Safety Week, May 24-30, 2015, through the launch of a new campaign, "Tires for Life." The campaign has been developed to steer women to become "Tire Smart" and realize that proper tire care and maintenance can both extend a tire's life and keep the lives that mean most to them safe.
As part of the "Tires for Life" campaign, Pirelli Tire will reinforce how they value your family's safety in a featured segment on The Balancing Act®, one of O2 Media's long-running Branded Entertainment programs. Maureen Kline, Director of Public Affairs and Sustainability for Pirelli Tire North America, will teach viewers some tire etiquette and educate women on how to check tire pressure, what to look for in tread wear and seasonal tire safety.
The show's premiere aired on Monday, May 25, 2015 with an encore presentation airing on Monday, June 1, at 7:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Lifetime TV.
Pirelli is among the largest global tire makers, and focuses on high end, premium tires. Its iconic 140 year history is known worldwide, and both Formula One drivers -- the most skilled in the world -- and high-octane moms trust Pirelli's peerless reputation for quality, ultra high performance, safety and comfort.
Testament to this is its recent launch of P Zero All Season Plus, a tire designed specifically for North American drivers, which marries the high performance DNA of the famed P Zero tire with all season capability to deliver an optimized driving experience. Today, as a supplier to top brands like Audi, BMW, Ferrari and Mercedes, Pirelli is also recognized for its sustainability practices and fuel efficiency tire design initiatives.
In recognition of National Tire Safety Week May 24-30, Pirelli asks you to "Be Tire Smart – Play Your Part."
