    But if each set of tires is mounted on a mpg car that's dri miles a year, and the low-rolling-resistance tires deliver a 2 percent annual fuel savings, they will save its owner $ SUV tires will generally have a lower speed rating than their passenger car counterparts. According to BF Goodrich, this is due largely to the tire's knobby tread, which is less capable of dissipating the sustained heat of high speed than a car tire's larger tread blocks. GO LIVE. Continental Tire. About the Author.

      Additionally, you can also apply similar percentages of improvement in fuel economy to other vehicles. The fuel saving dollar value of eco-friendly, low rolling resistance tires essentially doubles or quadruples when applied to typical cars that deliver mpg or light trucks and utility vehicles delivering mpg. What We Learned on the Road. An article published on Tire Review discusses the cost saving benefits of fuel efficient tires. “Studies show that 20% to 30% of a vehicle’s fuel consumption and 24% of road vehicle CO2 emissions are tire-related. Green tires can reduce fuel consumption by 5% to 7% and have a shorter cost amortization period in comparison to other fuel.

      Tires that reduce rolling resistance by 10 percent can improve gas mileage by one to two percent for most passenger vehicles.¹ They are now more common on new vehicles, so in some cases it is just a question of buying a new set of the same thing. If the vehicle equipped with standard Original Equipment, low rolling resistance passenger tires normally provided 25 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway, installing tires with 20% greater rolling resistance would only drop fuel mileage by a calculated 3% (to mpg) in the city and a calculated 5% (to mpg) on the highway.

Tires And Passenger Vehicle Fuel Economy: Informing Consumers, Improving Performance (Special Report (National Research Council (U S) Transportation Research Board)) by Transportation Research Board (Contributor).

TRB and the Board on Energy and Environmental Systems, part of the National Academies’ Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences (DEPS), have released Special ReportTires and Passenger Vehicle Fuel Economy: Informing Consumers, Improving Performance.

Most steel-belted radial passenger tires weigh more than 20 pounds, and they can exceed 50 pounds. The steel typically makes up about 15 percent of the total weight, the cord material another 5 percent, and the rubber compound in the carcass and tread about 80 percent (Modern Tire Dealer51).

Many variables affect vehicle fuel economy, among them the vehicle’s weight, aerodynamics, engine, driveline, and accessory load. The vehicle’s tires also influence fuel economy by causing rolling resistance, which consumes energy and thus reduces fuel economy.

Executive summary --Introduction --Background on passenger tires --The tire's influence on passenger vehicle fuel consumption --Rolling resistance, traction, and wear performance of passenger tires --National consumer savings and costs --Findings, conclusions, and recommendations --Appendix: Explanation and comparison of Society of Automotive.

The report reviews the technical literature and analyzes energy performance data from nearly passenger tires on the market today.

National fuel savings from improving the energy efficiency of passenger tires by 10 percent are quantified and the implications for consumer spending on tires, motor vehicle safety, and scrap tire generation are considered. appearance of their vehicles, as well as the fuel economy.

Tires affect fuel economy mainly through rolling resistance. As a tire rolls, its shape changes repeatedly as it experiences recurring cycles of deformation and recovery.

In the process, mechanical energy other-wise available to turn the wheels is converted into heat and dissipated from the tire.

More fuel. The tires they do buy will affect not only the handling, traction, ride comfort, and appearance of their vehicles but also fuel economy. Tires affect vehicle fuel economy mainly through rolling resistance.

As a tire rolls under the vehicle’s weight, its shape changes repeatedly as it experiences recurring cycles of deformation and recovery. TRB and the Board on Energy and Environmental Systems, part of the National Academies’ Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences (DEPS), have released Special ReportTires and Passenger Vehicle Fuel Economy: Informing Consumers, Improving Performance.

This report examines the contribution of tires to vehicle fuel consumption and the prospects for improving tire.

Encircling the tire is the tread. This is a thick band of rubber that forms the tire surface, from its crown (its largest radius) to its shoulders (the areas in which the tread transitions to the sidewalls).

The best modification anyone can make to a vehicle is to change the tires. This change can help increase your fuel economy by switching to a tire with a low rolling resistance designation.

A tire's. We also estimate that a 4% per vehicle improvement in fuel economy can be achieved based on a 20% reduction in passenger vehicle replacement tire rolling resistance. This correlation between fuel economy and rolling resistance is based largely on a U.S. EPA estimate that a 20% improvement in rolling resistance will result in a % CO 2.

Fuel economy: Most people choose to replace the tires of their vehicle with the same ones that were fitted on it when they bought the car. However, by shopping around and looking into other brands, you can find tires that can assist with the fuel economy of your vehicle.

Low-rolling-resistance tires are a good choice to boost fuel economy. Fuel-efficient tires can cost a bit more than standard tires, but they can also reduce the amount of gasoline needed by 6 percent. At this rate, the gas savings could pay for the premium on fuel-saving tires in about one year [source: Treehugger].
