In today’s economy watching expenses is a must and Tires are the second most significant expense for a Truck Driver. Well maintained tires can reduce your cost per mile and give your company a competitive advantage. It’s important to start with quality tires but even more important to know what conditions your truck will be driving in. Experts say that paying a premium for an OE Tire will actually save you money in the long run because having the correct tire in the correct application will drive the overall cost per mile down. Experts also say the first thing to think about is if you want to retread the tire later. It’s important to select a tire that delivers a casing that’s reliable for retreading. The second focus needs to be on buying the correct tire for individual wheel positions for each vehicle application. The end goal is to start out with the best possible tire that won’t compromise the original tread life or the mileage that can be obtained by retreading the tire.
Some Major Elements to a Quality Tire
-Long-Lasting, Trouble-Free original tread life
-Low Rolling Resistance (this will increase fuel economy and your profit margins) The harder that diesel engine works the more fuel it consumes the more money is expended in the long run to make that truck roll
-How dependable is the casing for retreadability? The casing is the foundation of the tire and having a quality casing promotes fuel efficiency, increased profits and more original milage.
Tire downtime means the cost of your tires increases because time equals money. Misplaced Tires can mean an overall reduction of 50% in tire milage for original tread. Ensuring you have Steer Tires, Drive Tires & Trailer Position Tires will help improve your fuel economy and actually lower your operational costs.
