How Tires Affect Fuel Economy

To get optimum fuel economy in your vehicle, make sure that all of the tires are in proper condition. First of all, check the pressure of each tire with a digital or manual gauge. You might also get some real-time feedback from a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that's connected to your car's infotainment system or instrument cluster. Tires that are underinflated place extra strain on the engine and other components in the powertrain, including the transmission system and brakes. Similarly, tires that have very little tread remaining do not get good traction on any paved surface. To keep worn-out tires rolling smoothly, your car's engine has to work extra hard. The general rule of thumb is that a tire should be replaced when its tread has reached 3/32 of an inch.

We hope that these basic tire tips will help you achieve good fuel economy for your daily drives.
