This is just one more way that they are leading the way in safety both to the environment and to their customers’ health. Tyres have an impact on fuel consumption, largely because of their lower rolling resistance. This is the force required to keep a wheel rolling. However, too much resistance can negatively affect the car’s fuel economy. This may be true of inferior tyres and it is certainly true of underinflated tyres.

Lower Rolling Resistance in Continental Tyres Equals Better Fuel Efficiency

Although rolling resistance is influenced by the dynamic properties of the tyre, including its geometry, construction, load and temperature, the most important aspect is the damping rubber. This refers to the amount of energy being absorbed by a tyre as it rolls under the weight of a vehicle, as compared tot the amount of energy that is repelled away from the tyre. Normally, the more elastic a rubber compound, the less energy it absorbs. As absorbed energy turns into heat, the amount of elasticity in a tyre is an important consideration.

The Continental engineers address the rolling resistance problem in various ways. These include with the careful selection of manufacturing materials, compounds and tread designs, as well as other engineering factors. This all contributes to the low rolling assistance that all our Continental tyres for sale have become known for, contributing to motorists achieving savings on their fuel costs over the lifespan of the tyres.
