Optimization of fuel consumption: Impact of tire choice

Tire selection plays a crucial role in optimizing fuel consumption for heavy-duty trucks. Fleet owners and managers should consider several factors when selecting tires, including rolling resistance, durability and specific driving conditions. In this article, we will explore the impact of tire choice on fuel consumption and present some of the best tires available at Pneus Québec.

The importance of rolling resistance

Rolling resistance is the force that opposes the movement of the tire on the road. The lower the rolling resistance, the less work the engine has to do to maintain the truck's speed, which results in reduced fuel consumption. Low rolling resistance tires are designed with special rubber compounds and optimized tread patterns to minimize friction.

Among the low rolling resistance tires available at Pneus Québec, we find the Doupro ST906 in 11R22.5 with 16 ply. This tire provides excellent traction and long life, while helping to reduce fuel consumption.

Durability and mileage

Durable tires that deliver high mileage can also help optimize fuel economy in the long run. By reducing the frequency of tire replacement, truck owners can save on purchase and installation costs, as well as fuel consumed during stops for tire maintenance.

The Forlander AST-1 in 11R22.5 16 ply is an excellent choice for those looking for a durable tire. With its rugged design and wear-resistant tread compound, this tire delivers exceptional mileage and reliable performance.
