Best Fuel Economy for SUV Tires Tested

Wednesday, January 26, 2011 by Chad Hocker
With data collected from last season's test results let's look at fuel economy information from our SUV test vehicles.

First Up: Crossover/SUV All-Season Tires
These tires combine a sophisticated appearance with all-season traction to upscale crossovers, sport utility vehicles and luxury pickups.

Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season Tires MPG
Kumho Solus KL21
18.3
Michelin Latitude Tour HP N1
18.3
Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season
18.2

Next up: Street/Sport Truck All-Season Tires
These tires provide good traction and handling and improve on the look of your vehicle's Original Equipment tires. They offer an ultra low profile wth large rim diameter sizes.

Street/Sport Truck All-Season
MPG
Firestone Desination ST
17.8
Kumho Ecsta STX KL12
17.8
Pirelli Scorpion Zero
18.3

The fuel economy data was collected from our team of test drivers who completed approximately 500 miles per tire over several days on our 6.6-mile test loop. Using this fuel data as a comparison shows that there is a small difference in mileage and would result in only a few extra fill-ups a year.
