Gas Mileage & Tires

Some tires grip better.  Some last longer. But did you know some tires are actually designed to give you better gas mileage? Now, there’s a bonus.

The most important gas mileage features in a tire are:

 

Proper Air Pressure

Under-inflated tires are one of the biggest causes of excess fuel usage in the world. The American Automobile Agency has stated that operating a vehicle with underinflated tires can result in a 25-percent reduction in fuel economy. Ouch.

 

Tire Construction

The lower the rolling resistance, the less effort from your engine, the better the gas mileage. This is why passenger tires offer better gas mileage and longer tread life than SUV/Light Truck tires and winter tires, whose heavier tread patterns are designed with maximum traction in mind.

  • This three-digit number represents the width of the tire in millimeters (mm), measured from sidewall to sidewall. Since this measure is affected by the width of the rim, the measurement is done when the tire is on its intended rim size.  <div><img src="/assets/bfg/system/images/contextual-help/R2-width.png" /></div>
  • The aspect ratio is the relationship of a tire's sidewall height to its section width, expressed as a percentage. In this example, the tire sidewall height is approximately 55% of the tire width. The higher the number, the taller the sidewall; the lower the number, the lower the sidewall.<div><img src="/assets/bfg/system/images/contextual-help/R2-aspect.png" /></div>
