In December, 2014, the White House announced a new tire safety and efficiency program. Tire Rack has partnered with the White House, as have several other manufacturers and tire retail partners along with the Department of Transportation (DOT), to raise awareness about tire safety and take action to cut carbon pollution and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.
As part of this program, by 2017 the DOT will finalize a rule to establish a tire fuel efficiency information program so consumers can identify the most energy-efficient tires. We are ready to help with this guide to fuel-efficient, low rolling resistance tires that includes a listing of current options that focus on fuel economy as a high priority.
And since 2010, our test results have included fuel consumption comparisons done in a real-world environment similar to what typical drivers would experience during day-to-day driving.
