Tire Testers Improve Vehicle Fuel Economy

Detroit News - October 6, 2010

Tire Rack, a direct-to-con­sumer retail­er that does a lot of tire test­ing, says buy­ing fuel-effi­cient tires can bol­ster fuel econ­o­my 4–7%. And that keep­ing those same tires prop­er­ly inflat­ed can improve fuel econ­o­my anoth­er 2–3%. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, many con­sumers replace tires with cheap­er mod­els that get less impres­sive fuel econ­o­my.
