Fuel Economy Numbers from the Latest Ultra High Performance All-Season Tire Test

Another round of 2010 tire testing is complete. This time we are back in our BMW test cars. Tire Rack tested tires from the Ultra High Performance All-Season category collecting fuel economy data during our Real World Road Ride -- a test drive on a circuit of highway and county roads in Indiana. The fuel economy results for the tires we tested are shown below.

The Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 achieved the best fuel economy at 26.5 mpg in our BMW E92 328i Coupe which is a surprise to me as I didn't expect them to do that well.

Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires MPG
Dunlop SP Sport Signature (W&Y)
26.0
Pirelli PZero Nero All Season
26.4
Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 (W)
26.5
Yokohama AVID ENVigor (W)
26.1

This information is based on our team of test drivers completing approximately 500 miles per tire over several days on the same 6.6-mile test loop. I would recommend using this fuel data as a good tire buying tie-breaker since the mileage differences are small and would only result in a difference of a few extra fill-ups every year.
