Wide Base Tires
Recent tests of wide-base tires indicate a potential fuel economy improvement of two to five percent compared to dual tires. By using wide-base tires, a combination long-haul truck could save over 400 gallons of fuel per year and cut emissions of carbon dioxide (the most common greenhouse gas) by more than four metric tons annually. Cutting operating costs and carbon emissions make sense. We help you do both at the same time.
Other benefits include:
- fuel savings
- weight savings
- reduced inventory levels
- fewer mounts and dismounts
- easier pressure maintenance
“Specifying single wide-base tires on a new combination truck could save $1,000 initially, and cut over four metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions per year. Fuel savings of 2% or higher begin immediately.”
