(Stage it Right!)
We know everyone would like to get better gas mileage, and we all know keeping our tires properly inflated will use less gas. But is anyone familiar with "low rolling resistance" tires? First manufactured by Michelin and poo-pooed by the auto manufacturers, these tires have been around a long time but are now just getting the attention they deserve. Low resistance tires essentially hug less of the road than the traditional tire, thus reducing the drag produced and garnering up to 4 mpg more in gas mileage. Several tire manufacturers make these tires, Michelin, Bridgestone, Goodyear, and Yokohama. I chose the Yokohama Geolander because of reputation, price, and composition.
