Fuel efficient tyres save us money and are kinder to our environment. Using them is just common sense and it is catching on!
Energywise have just launched an on going campaign in partnership with leading tyre companies to promote the use of fuel efficient car tyres in New Zealand. Previously the consumer has had some difficulty identifying which tyres were genuinely fuel efficient due to conflicting tyre company claims and a multitude of labels including eco tyres, low rolling resistance tyres, fuel efficient and energy efficient tyres. Also there was an absence of official criteria for important performance indicators like wet weather braking and fuel saving.
The new Energywise approved fuel efficient tyres have all been tested in accordance with officially mandated tests which will give consumers confidence that they are buying tyres that are both safe on road in wet conditions, when safety really counts, and will genuinely save fuel. These are rigorous tests of high integrity that can be relied on. At this time only major manufacturers of premium tyres, who have the requisite test facilities, have signed up with the new Energywise Tyre scheme.
Hankook Tyres and their acclaimed energy efficient H308, K115 and K425 tyres are foundation products for Energywise; initially scheme accreditation is limited to a selected range of sizes with more sizes being added as official testing is complete.
All Energywise tyres will have an official label confirming their compliance with the Energywise tyre scheme. Further information is available from the official campaign website. Click Here
Best news of all is that Hankook Energywise compliant tyres do not cost a lot. All the benefits of these great tyres can be enjoyed without great expense.
