Eco-performance tyres play an important part in finding the balance between vehicle performance and green design. Additional and more the modern automotive aftermarket strives to incorporate environmentally friendly and fuel efficient elements into vehicles. Often this is available in the form of developing processes, materials and engine technologies, but tyres can make a huge difference to the fuel efficiency and lowering of emissions.
Tires designed to be ‘eco’ reduce fuel consumption by providing low rolling level of resistance. This means that there is less friction between the tyre and the street surface. Because reduced moving resistance means the tyre’s grip is also reduced, a special compound must be included with the tyre to create a more efficient tread – otherwise the auto would be at risk from skidding and less efficient braking system. In recent times, this combo was impossible, so the eco-performance tyre is a relatively new development. homepage
Silica was introduced into tyre compounds to provide the necessary grip to low rolling resistance tyres. The design, pattern and curve of tyre tread was also refigured to ensure that optimum grip was available in both dry out and wet road conditions. The structure is a bit more rigid, and take grooves are optimised with narrower sipes, which reduce the deformation of the tread over time, reducing energy loss and moving resistance. Low rolling amount of resistance gives better fuel economic system, saving you money, cutting your emissions and also supplying your car a more stable ride.
Environmentally friendly tires also absorb energy to improve your car’s gasoline efficiency, even at high speeds, on wet streets and during braking and manoeuvres, without losing hold. Regular tyres heat up fairly quickly when in use, which uses up additional energy – ecosystem tyres take longer to heat up, therefore lowering energy consumption also, raise the efficiency of the powertrains. One negative of ecosystem tyres is related to this, in that the area of rubber making contact with the trail tends to heating up quickly during braking system, which can shorten brake distances.
Generally, eco tires are not suited for top rated tyres, because they do not supply the appropriate levels of grip and handling required by these powerful vehicles. However, new ranges of eco-performance tires are being created to allow high performance vehicles to reap the benefits associated with increased fuel efficiency, lower fuel consumption, minimised energy loss and low going resistance. Put together with other eco friendly attributes, modern autos fitted with eco tires can significantly make a difference to your and also carbon emissions – and your wallet.
