A recent article in Tires & Wheels, “What Fleets Expect From Their Tires,” examines the connection between extended tire mileage and fuel economy and offers good advice for improving both.
The author notes that one of the best ways to improve fuel economy is to promote even tire wear. “Not only does early onset of irregular wear lead to premature tire removal, but also adversely affects vehicle fuel economy,” writes Contributing Editor Al Cohn. “A tire with smooth, even wear will have the best fuel economy versus the same tire that has, for example, shoulder cupping and/or high-low lug wear.” Read the full article for more fuel saving insights from Tires & Wheels.
