The study investigates a diverse range of tires currently available on the replacement passenger car tire market. One hundred-six tires from fifty different model lines were tested. The rolling resistance of these tires are analyzed against other tire characteristics (tire construction, new versus retread, etc.) to gain insight as to the effects of these characteristics on vehicle fuel economy.
