Low rolling resistance tires are important to maximize gas mileage. With rolling resistance tires, they help reduce the energy loss as a tire roll, thereby reducing the rolling effort, with the end result being that you get better gas mileage. All-season tires often have low rolling resistance as the tread on these tires is less aggressive, allowing for less friction, which lowers the rolling resistance. Rolling resistance is defined as the force resisting the motion when the wheel moves on the road. When this resistance is reduced, it will allow you to save on gas or the distance that can be traveled by an electric car before the battery needs to be charged. ¬†Low rolling resistance tires are considered environmentally friendly as they help lower carbon emissions and thereby reduce pollution. All-season tires are also quite flexible, being able to handle almost any weather or road conditions except snow and…
