As suggested by their name, fuel efficient tires are designed to maximize overall MPG. Yes, we know tire selection can be confusing with all the varieties, ranging from seasonal to competition DOT tires. We’ll explain the concept of these tires and how they improve your commute.
Fuel Efficient Tires—How Fuel Efficient Are They?
Fuel efficient tires are constructed to reduce rolling resistance. Rolling resistance is the force that works against the engine as it moves the vehicle. Less rolling resistance from the tire means higher fuel economy.
Top tire manufacturers have released their own versions of these tires. Goodyear, for instance, has a brand of tires that decreases rolling resistance through a special construction in its sidewall. They’re also reinforced for all-weather use. With this type of tire construction, you can save roughly 2,600 miles of fuel over the tires’ three to four-year lifespan. We’re not endorsing Goodyear; we’re just using it as an example of the many types of tires with fuel efficient capabilities.
The Outlook For Fuel-Efficient Tires
Although these types of tires have been around since the 90’s, they’re just starting to gain traction, so to speak, as the public becomes more conscious of green living. Expect these kinds of tires to become more commonplace as car manufacturers compete for the label of most fuel efficient vehicle for their respective models. This is especially true of full-size pickup trucks, minivans, and SUV’s, which are notorious gas guzzlers.
