Tyres for buses and trucks

Tyre construction

The materials used to construct tyres affects rolling resistance and fuel use. Some tyre suppliers claim improvements in fuel consumption of up to 5% from lower rolling resistance tyres. Those tyres may have a shorter life but even a 10% reduction in tyre life will not cost more than the benefit of a 1% fuel saving. It may be worth evaluating these types of tyres to see if they could suit your needs.
