Low rolling resistance tires 2018

Do you concur?

I am going to copy and past this article for all its worth incase the link goes dead in the future like an article on a failed man made climate change narrative.

And here it is......

With fuel prices constantly rising and falling, many drivers are looking to get the highest fuel mileage they can out of their vehicles. One of the biggest ways to increase fuel efficiency is with a set of new tires.

Today, tire makers are using the latest in technology to create tires that lower rolling resistance and add 2-8% in higher fuel mileage, which definitely adds up over time. That said, here’s our 2018 Top 10 Most Fuel Efficient Tires. All tires are not listed in any particular order. They are all designed with performance and fuel efficiency in mind.

Picture a tire here: 0

The Michelin Energy Saver A/S is Michelin’s most fuel efficient tire in Michelin's lineup. It’s unique tread compound and EnergySaver construction claim to add up to 8% more fuel efficiency to your hybrid or fuel efficient vehicle. Beyond that, this model provides excellent dry and wet performance to go with a very comfortable ride quality. There’s also a 65,000 mile tread warranty included.

The new Continental PureContact with ecoplus technology is specially designed with Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives in the tread compound that provide a lower rolling resistance and enhance fuel efficiency. It also provides increased dry, wet and snow traction. ComforRide technology adds a shock absorbent layer to give the tire extra comfort on all road surfaces. You’ll also find a 70,000 mile tread guarantee on this tire.

Another tire: 0

With an environmentally-friendly tread design, the Ecopia EP422 uses Bridgestone’s NanoPro Tech tread compound for lower rolling resistance and enhanced fuel economy. The symmetric tread pattern also sports a Fuel Saver compound in the sidewalls that further add to better fuel efficiency. Expect to find very capable all-season traction and a comfortable ride on this tire.

A tire: 0

Goodyear’s Assurance Fuel Max is designed with a low rolling resistance tread compound for greater fuel efficiency and all-season driving performance. This model features unique Dry and Wet Zones that function together to provide the best traction and handling possible. Add in the comfortable ride this tire provides and a 65,000 mile tread warranty and it’s easy to see why this tire is a popular choice among drivers of all types of coupes, sedans, vans and crossovers.

And that's it.
Looks like the good year if your best bet for trucks and SUVs.
