Short commutes.
Light vehicles with little light tires and slow wear.
Easy on the gas; easy on the brakes; easy around the corners.
Less "recreational" tearing around i.e. trip combine or maybe even get up off butt once in a while i.e. Don't drive a special trip three blocks to the store/post office/gas station.
Run 'em until the cords are showing.
