Verified Low Rolling Resistance Tires
EPA has determined that certain tire models can reduce NOx emissions and fuel use by 3 percent or more, relative to the best selling new tires for line haul class 8 tractor trailers. These improvements are achieved under the following conditions:
- Tires are used on the axle positions stated on the list below.
- Verified low rolling resistance tires are installed on all of the axle positions of the tractor and trailer.
- All tires must be properly inflated according to the manufacturer's specifications.
The following low rolling resistance tires are SmartWay verified when used on class 8, line-haul tractor trailers:
