Just how 'green' are low rolling resistant tires?
Is $1.90 per tankful enough of a savings to get people to buy lower rolling resistant tires from you? How about $72 in savings a year? Or $360 over the life of their tires?
That is the question raised by Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich in his latest blog. "Green tires seem to be a major trend in the industry," he says.
"It comes up in a lot of conversations, and tire manufacturers are producing tires with lower rolling resistance because they see a need. But is it just wishful thinking?"
