Goodyear Launches Fuel-Efficient Truck Tire Lines

Green Car Congress: Goodyear Launches Fuel-Efficient Truck Tire Lines

Ok, if you took the time to read the article, you see that simply changing the tires on a semi can save .24 MPG. Translating to 770 gallons a year, giving truck drivers a savings of $2,333.

I don't know how much these tires cost, but I would hope that they are cheap enough that drivers get their payback in less than 6 months.

And what truck driver out there doesn't want to make an extra grand a year? The money saving will only continue to go up as the price of gas goes up. But if all drivers changed their tires, there's be a lot less gas being used.

This is awesome. Where is this technology for the cars?
