Standard Touring All-Season Tire Testing Fuel Economy

Thursday, October 21, 2010 by Chad Hocker
Tire Rack tested tires from the Standard Touring All-Season category, collecting fuel economy data during our Real World Road Ride -- a test drive on a circuit of highway and county roads near our corporate headquarters in Indiana. The fuel economy results for the Standard Touring All-Season tires we tested are shown below.

The tire with the best fuel economy is the General AltiMAX RT at 27.0 mpg in our BMW 3 Series test vehicles.

Standard Touring All-Season Tires MPG
BFGoodrich Premier Touring
26.5
Firestone Precision Touring
26.8
General AltiMAX RT
27.0
Yokohama AVID TOURING-S 26.8

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.

Watch for the full test results online shortly.

This was one of our closest fuel economy test results -- essentially the top three tires are a dead heat with the fourth not too far behind.
