5 ways to Green Your Tires
Let GreenYour help you roll up to the green light when it comes to your tires. From eco-friendlier materials to resolving disposal issues, there are lots of ways to put the brakes on the your tires' crash course with the environment.
Remolded or retreaded tires require less raw material—especially truck tires, which can be safely retreaded multiple times.
Low-rolling-resistance tires improve your vehicle's fuel economy. If every car and light truck in America had low-rolling-resistance tires installed, we'd cut our annual oil imports by as much as four percent.
Keeping your tires properly inflated will ensure maximum fuel economy and reduce wear. Tires lose air pressure at the rate of about one psi/month, and underinflation of just six psi can reduce fuel efficiency by three percent.
Maintain your tires as per the manufacturer's recommendations to ensure even tire wear, long time life, and increased fuel efficiency.
Look into recycling old tires. You'll be supporting the recycled products industry while avoiding potentially hazardous, pest-infested pile-ups in your neighborhood.
