TIRERACK ADDS FUEL EFFICIENCY INFORMATION TO WEBSITE

Aug 5, 2010

There's no denying that tires are one of the most important components of your car. Whether dealing with traction, noise or longevity, tires play a huge role. They are also important when it comes to fuel mileage as Tire Rack now demonstrates with its newest ratings.

Everybody knows Tire Rack is America's largest independent tire tester. This week they released a new fuel economy component to its database.

Fuel-efficient tires with Low Rolling Resistance properties are identified on the website and a vehicle fuel economy component has been added to its tire testing regimen. These new consumer-information features allow shoppers to quickly identify tires designed to be eco-friendly, as well as see how tire choices can influence vehicle fuel-consumption. The ability to sort thousands of tire offerings and highlight tires designed to be low rolling resistant and energy efficient will allow consumers interested in fuel economy to narrow their search by characteristics that are most important to them.

The new fuel economy component test reports provides real world data to determine which tires save the greatest amount of fuel and how that translates into their daily driving style. For instance, in recent tests TireRack.com determined that the impact of fuel savings for a BMW 3-Series driven 15,000 miles a year could be as much as 30 gallons. With the average price of fuel at $2.75 a gallon, a consumer can save a total of $80 annually by outfitting a mid-sized sedan with the most efficient of the tires tested.

So if you're shopping for tires, what are you waiting for? Go to your homework at tirerack.com.
