With the world becoming more and more environmentally cautious, tyre manufactures and EU regulators have really upped their game in recent years to give us drivers more choices when it comes to the efficiency of our tyres. So whether it's an EV, a Hybrid or a big V8 ICE car getting a tyre that is fuel or energy efficient can really make a difference to your pocket and the environment over it's lifetime.
What are fuel efficient tyres?
Technically fuel efficient tyres are those which have a low rolling resistance, or in simple terms tyres that take waste less energy while transferring motion to the ground!
Fuel efficient tyres can also be called energy saving and eco friendly tyres, but they are all designed to consume less fuel. This in turn means fewer emissions, or less electricity and more range if you have an EV. The most efficient eco friendly tyres have the lowest rolling resistance, resulting in reduced fuel consumption and less energy lost. Fuel efficient tyres are designed to keep the tyre tread intact for longer.
Rolling Resistance or Fuel efficiency categories are a main part of the UK and EU tyre energy performance label. Fuel Efficiency start from A (green) and as of May 2021 ends with E (red). Class A is the most efficient, while class E is the weakest of the seven categories
Check the pressure!
To get the most out of your eco tyres, it's also very important to keep fuel-efficient tyres accurately inflated so they work at their best. That why we've created a Tyre Pressure Search Tool to help you find the correct tyre pressure for your car.
