Fuel Saving Tips

Consider Total Cost of Ownership with Tires, not just Tire Pressure!

Many will suggest simply over inflating tires for best mileage. Overinflated tires wear the center before the edges, which can lead to premature replacement. Tires are expensive and may lead to a higher total cost of ownership than the saved gas alone. When tires need to be replaced, choose the rubber compound wisely. Tires that claim "high mileage" use a harder compound that can increase fuel efficiency and cost of use, but will have less traction in winter as well. Choose the tire for the application, not just the cheapest tire or by brand!
