Save fuel, with fuel-efficient tyres

Fuel and personnel are the biggest expenses in transport operations, accounting for 20% and 25% of the total fleet costs respectively. Tyres influence fuel consumption significantly: of all variable factors that can affect the fuel consumption of a vehicle, about one third is related to the tyres rolling resistance. Also important is the tread of the tyre which is responsible for around 45% of the tyre rolling resistance (and thus fuel consumption). So making the right tyre choice and opting for low rolling resistance treads is an important business decision.
