Using SmartWay to Make Sure Your Fleet Is Saving Money on Tires (In the Long Run)

When deciding which tires to buy for your fleet, focusing only on price and not quality might actually end up costing you more. For the data on what tires are best for you go to SmartWay.  SmartWay verification tells a fleet manager a tire has low rolling resistance which will help reduce a tractor trailers fuel consumption by at least 3%.

Some SmartWay Approved Tires include:

Yokohama Tire TY51:  “wide-based tire has added traction and long even wear with an advanced profile for increased durability and retreadability.”

Goodyear Fuel Max LHD G505D truck tire: “North America’s most fuel-efficient long-haul tire.”

Cooper Tires offers a full range of Roadmaster tires low-rolling-resistance which helps to improve fuel economy.

Giti Tire USA 16-ply version of its GT Radial GSL213FS long-haul steer tire is designed for higher front-end axles and gross vehicle weight.
