Good Tires For Better Mileage

 

 

With the cost of gas going up more and coming down less good tire care is a must. In the cold temperatures of winter driving it's even more important for good gas mileage. Cold, under-inflated tires cost more to move your vehicle down the road.

Just like the engine and oil need to warm up before driving in cold temperatures tires also need to warm up to become more flexible. Rubber gets stiff in the cold. It takes more gas to roll a hard, cold tire than it does a warmed up tire.

Also, consulting the manual and keeping the tires properly inflated maintains better gas mileage as well. Under-inflated tires, just like cold tires, need more gas to move the vehicle.
