Fuel Efficient Tyres

Look after your money and the environment. Better fuel efficieny equals lower driving cost and reduce emmisions.

Fuel Efficient Tyres

What are fuel efficient?

Tyres with a high fuel efficiency rating help reduce fuel usage and hence help reduce CO2 emissions. A rated is the most efficient tyre with the lowest rolling resistance, which means less energy is required to turn them on the road. G rating is the least efficient tyre.

Tyres require fuel, and hence energy to make them turn on the road, this is due to friction between the tyre and road surfaces. This is refered to as rolling resistance. Manufacturers attempt to reduce the rolling resistance in a number of ways. They change the compound of the rubber to maximise efficieny, whilst maintaining safety and performance. Another way of making the tyre more fuel efficient is by producing tyres with a more aerodynamic profile, which helps to reduce drag again increasing the tyres fuel efficiency

The Benefits of fuel efficient tyres?

20% of the fuel you put in your vehicle is used by your tyres, so it makes sence to use a more fuel efficient tyre, it is a cost benefit to you, and a benefit to the environment.


Tyre Labelling

Choosing more fuel efficient tyres for your vehicle will help you save fuel and reduce your costs. With the easy-to-read energy efficiency label, finding ding the right tyre for you is simple. To ensure fuel savings does not mean lower safety or higher noise, the label highlights three important parameters: fuel ffciency, wet grip and noise. The labels are designed to helping you make an informed and energy efficient choice.

Your tyres will come with a label divided into three sections with information on:

1. Fuel Efficiency
Depending on the tyre’s rolling resistance, its Fuel Efficiency Class will range from
A is the most efficient tyre and will save you fuel, to G, the least efficient tyre and will use up the most fuel.

2. Wet Grip
The Wet Grip rating tells you how well the tyres perform in wet conditions on a scale from A (safest) to G (worst performing tyre).

3. Noise
A tyre’s noise level is measured in decibels (dB) using a three wave scale.
