Tire Rack – тест экономичных всесезонных шин


all vehicles consume energy as they drive and while the internal combustion engine is responsible for the largest share your tires also play an important role in the fuel consumption equation to help maximize mpg most vehicle manufacturers have been using tires designed with an emphasis on low rolling resistance for some time but on the other hand most replacement tires have focused on other characteristics drivers want such as longer tread life or better wet traction but today’s ever-growing interest in being more eco-friendly has some drivers asking for replacement tires that put a bigger priority on improving fuel efficiency so we tested three of the newest eco-friendly replacement tires for crossovers and suv’s comparing the bridgestone dueler HL 422 a copia continental cross contact LX 20 with eco plus technology and the good your assurance CS Fuel next let’s see how they drive first up we’re driving on the bridgestone dueler HL 422 Autopia our team gave this tired good marks for ride comfort we also found it has minimal tread noise and has a direct linear field to steering inputs here on the track this tire feels well balanced and poised but it doesn’t have quite the ultimate grip to match the pace of the others in the wet this tire again showed balanced traction and handling that inspires confidence now we’re driving on the Continental across contact LX 20 and the right of this tire feels taut and well controlled as it encounters rougher sections on our road there’s very little tread noise and the steering feels noticeably more responsive than the other tires in our test here on the track in dry conditions this tire brought the sporty feel we found on the road displaying crisp handling and good stability during the abrupt maneuvers of our course in the wet it showed it’s real strength the significantly more overall traction than the other and finally we’re driving on the Goodyear Assurance max the right of this tire is a little softer than the other tires but there’s also a little bit of Johnson jiggle that you feel after encountering rougher pavement handling is appropriate but it’s just not quite as responsive as the other tires in our test on the track this tire displays noticeably slower steering responds but has sufficient overall traction to stay close to the cross contact our lives 20 and in the web this tire trails the others again with slower steering response and noticeably less grip even though crossovers and SUVs may not be the most efficient vehicles on the road they can benefit from riding on more efficient tires all three of the tires in our tests were designed with low rolling resistance as a high priority and based on our results the eight tenths of a mile per gallon difference from lowest to highest would result in an annual difference of about 34 gallons of gasoline several of the tires in our tests were able to achieve the best fuel consumption ratings we’ve seen today from our SUV test vehicles but when viewed in the context of the whole performance envelope there appeared to be some concessions to get there the bridgestone dueler HL 422 copia and goodyear assurance CS fuel max both deliver on the promise of good mpg but they also give up a little traction to get it the Continental across contact LX 20 offers excellent wet & dry traction while trading off some fuel efficiency versus the best tires we tested as we compare tires side-by-side we find each has its own personality it’s not as easy as simply choosing between good and bad so as you view our test results it’s important to focus on your priorities and what fits best with how where and what you drive and also be sure to go to tire comm for our complete test report and to learn more about the tires featured in this test research by deliver install
