Smart tire spec’ing can save money in two ways: reducing tire cost per mile and fuel cost per mile. Attributes that reduce one cost can have the opposite effect on the other cost. Tire makers have increasingly focused their products to meet specific service options, so in light of your application and truck specs, carefully evaluate plies, weight rating, wheel position and tread design, depth and compound.
