screw low rolling resistance, best mpg gains are found around never leaving top gear not gaining negligible mpg on highways that your only on for 85 % of the time even, even if you drive 90%highway better handling=better mpg than rolling blahblah im getting 42mpg in a normal 34/35 mpg vehicle at 65-70mph, plus when you get thin tires, ever consider how easily you could drive off the highway with a big gust of wind? unsafe high mpg is just plain stupid
I thought that wider tires had less rolling resistance.
I do believe they are a harder rubber which takes away from handling.
one thing that I wonder is that you make these claims (which are probably true) so why don't you have a gaslog and a garage? I have a similar situation mileage wise. my car is rated 25mpg and I am averaging around 35. I don't talk hwy mileage because nobody drives 100% highway and actually, I hardly ever dorive highway at all. my commute to work and back (which accounts for over 90% of my driving) is non-highway driving.
Be the change you wish to see in the world
My study has all indicated that wider tires have less rolling resistance. I also agree that carrying your inertia through a turn by not having to brake beforehand is an effective (and fun!) gas saving technique, though it did get me in some trouble today when some neighborhood pedestrians were scared by my fast entrance onto my street (even though I slowed down to 15mph when I discovered pedestrians).
