Why Choose Low Rolling Resistance Tires?
The reason many drivers choose a hybrid car is fuel efficiency. Low rolling resistance tires are typically considered the fuel efficient tire of choice because they maximize the output of the vehicle’s driving range. Simply put, low rolling resistance tires help increase a vehicle’s energy. A competent set of tires increases fuel efficiency so your tires roll smoothly and acceleration doesn’t drag. Standard tires need more energy to roll. But low rolling resistance tires use less energy to travel distances.
What is Life Span of Low Rolling Resistance Tires?
Well, the answer to that question depends on how you drive your vehicle, how often you check the air pressure and balance the tires, regular tire rotations, and also the quality of the tires you buy. That said, it’s generally known that the shallower tread of these tires leads them to be replaced more often than conventional tires. They can also be more expensive than standard ones. However, rising fuel costs over the long run show that the savings in fuel will balance out the cost of the tires. According to the Energy Information Agency, the average American drives over 12,000 miles a year and consumes an average of 550 gallons of fuel. Edmund’s, an informational resource on vehicles, says that the total cost of ownership for low rolling resistance tires can be 8% less than convention tires when fuel savings are accounted for.
