Super Singles SmartWay Certified

September 28, 2010

Greatec wide-base radials are said to reduce fuel consumption at least 3 percent compared to average new tires.

Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire’s Greatec wide-base drive and Greatec trailer radials have been added to the Environmental Protection Agency’s SmartWay-certified list of commercial tires. Besides meeting SmartWay’s fuel efficiency specifications (at least 3 percent better fuel economy than the average new tire), Greatec radials offer a payload advantage. Because the wide singles weigh less than dual assemblies they replace, fleets may be able to carry more payload. Recent Department of Energy research confirmed that using single wide tires on a truck’s drive and trailer axles can improve fuel efficiency 6 to 10 percent compared with standard dual configurations.
