Fortunately. many tires become very similar in rolling resistance. even if they started out quite different. 86 . rolling resistance decreases. and when retreaded – especially when capped with a fuel-efficient tread – may offer superior fuel economy. there are a number of fuel-efficient retread materials available offering fuel economy comparable to that of the best new tires. but at a fraction of their cost. a tire with a shallower tread tends to be more fuel-efficient.or lug-types. unless it’s retreaded with a fuelefficient tread. 80% worn = 6. like that of the BBTS TLCC program. With drive tires. Technical Bulletins That’s one reason the BBTS TLCC program uses true average rolling resistance – not new-tire rolling resistance – to calculate tire fuel consumption. as the tread wears away. As they approach wear-out. designs incorporating continuous shoulder ribs are so resistant to irregular wear that designers can use very fuel-efficient tread compounds. about ¼ to 1⁄3 of it is used to overcome rolling resistance. can help you decide which tires deliver the best fuel efficiency. the fuel efficiency of the tire may end when it is retreaded. General Technical 35-50% Tread Compound Cap Base Fuel economy with retreads If only the tread is modified to produce fuel economy. while the casing contributes about 50 to 65 percent. rib-type designs are more fuel-efficient than block. Rolling resistance in the tire The tread contributes about 35-50 percent of the tire’s overall rolling resistance. Tire Contributions to the Fuel Bill Of the fuel used in moving the vehicle.General Technical Information 2010 Bridgestone Medium and Light Truck Tire Data Book 181 lb per TIRE WIDE BASE LOW PROFILE 250 lb per PAIR Wide base tires can allow weight savings to be converted into revenue-producing payload and may be more fuel-efficient than ordinary dual assemblies. So if rolling resistance decreases by 10 percent the result is about (¼ x 10% =) 2.5% savings If the tires they replace were not fuel-efficient. wide base tires may also contribute to fuel economy. Computer analysis. 50-65% Casing Load/Inflation Wear effect on rolling resistance Since the contribution of the tread is large.5% savings Light Truck Tread design Tread design also affects rolling resistance. In addition. many BBTS casings are specially constructed for fuel efficiency. In general.

If you are evaluating tires. If you can’t benefit from the weight savings. 34. 87 51. only BBTS has the Tire Life Cycle Cost (TLCC) program.

No. The lateral stiffness improves quickly as the tread wears and a driver will become accustomed to the initial difference in sensation. Reduced inflation pressure and deeper tread depth results in lower lateral stiffness.

Mounting Tubeless Truck Tires
Proper mounting practices are mandatory to help ensure uniform tire/wheel assemblies for application to heavy duty trucks which use 22.5 and 24.5 bead diameter tubeless truck tires. Failure to follow the industry recommendations for mounting uniformity may result in improper tire bead/wheel fit and can lead to vehicle vibration and irregular tire wear. Bridgestone recently conducted a tire mounting study involving tubeless tires of different brands, aspect ratios and bead diameters on new and used steel and aluminum wheels. Bridgestone tires included in this study were R299, R194-LP, R293 and R194 designs. Results of the evaluation showed that regardless of the item combination checked, uniform assemblies were obtained when the following three practices were performed: 1. Clean the wheel or rim

General Technical

Light Truck

2. Lubricate the tire and beads AND WHEEL/RIM BEAD SEAT 3. Check the assembly for concentricity 1. A used wheel/rim should be cleaned by wire brushing to remove rust, scale and build-up. Painting the cleaned metal with primer or anti-rust paint is recommended. 2. Before assembling tire and wheel/rim, lubricate tire beads and wheel/rim seat with a vegetable oil-based lubricant formulated for tire and wheel/rim use. Do not use petroleum- or solvent-based products, as they cause rubber deterioration. Failure to lubricate the wheel/rim as well as the tire can lead to a non-uniform assembly. The best initial balance is obtained by matching the tire's light spot (marked by a yellow dot or circle) at the wheel/rim valve. 3. To check the assembly for concentricity of a tire and wheel/rim, measure the distance between the tireflange interface and the circumferential ring molded into the tire sidewall at four locations (90 degrees apart) around the tire-flange circumference. Distances measured should be within a 2/32" (1.5 mm) range for acceptable uniformity. If the ranges in distance within the same side of the tire are greater than this, break down assembly, REMEMBER: re-lubricate and remount the tire. CLEAN! LUBRICATE! Following these practices will reduce vehicle vibration and irregular CHECK! wear occurrences. The first step in investigating these types of AND ALWAYS FOLLOW ALL OSHA, complaints should be the measurement of tire and wheel/rim RMA, AND MANUFACTURER concentricity to determine if non-uniform mounting is present, and MOUNTING SAFETY the probable cause.
