ROLLING RESISTANCE AND OTHER LOSS FACTORS
A truck engine has to overcome three major forces in order to maintain speed:
At 65mph, aerodynamic drag accounts for approximately 40% of fuel consumption.
Mechanical losses account for approximately 25% of fuel consumption.
Rolling resistance accounts for approximately 35% of fuel consumption.
MICHELIN® X ONE® TIRES CAN REDUCE ROLLING RESISTANCE UP TO 30%.
How? It only offers two sidewalls compared to the usual four of duals. Plus, it offers advanced tread and casing technologies.
