1. Line Haul Tire Rolling Resistance & Fuel Economy Overview - TRALA GHG Webinar - 1/24/2011 Kevin Legge Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company Project Manager - Line Haul Truck

2. Truck Tire Rolling Resistance

3. Truck Tire Rolling Resistance Testing Method

4. Tire Factors (Rolling Resistance) The less rolling resistance a tire creates, the better the fuel economy. Look at the affect these tire components have on rolling resistance. As you can see, 60% of the fuel efficiency gains result from the tire’s tread. The less rolling resistance a tire creates, the better the fuel economy.

5. New Technologies to Reduce Tire Rolling Resistance

7. Truck Tire Rolling Resistance & Tractor-Trailer Fuel Economy Performance

8. Factors Affecting Truck Tire Rolling Resistance/Fuel Economy

9. Vehicle Drag Forces @ 65 mph - Example

10. Tire Drag Forces (Rolling Resistance)

11. On-Vehicle Evaluation Four standard industry test procedures SAE J1376 Engineering Type Procedure SAE J1321 Type II Procedure SAE J1526 Type III Procedure TMC RP 1109 Type IV Procedure

12. Controlled Vehicle Test Environment vs Real Life

14. US-EPA voluntary program to improve energy efficiency & reduce greenhouse gases.US-EPA voluntary program to improve energy efficiency & reduce greenhouse gases.

15. Tire companies that are approved Partners: 14 New tire manufacturers Over 90 tires and growing SmartWay™ classifies Partners as entities that commit to direct emissions reductions and fuel savings. I.e Fleets Goodyear would be classified as a SmartWay™ Affiliate

16. What qualifies a tire to become SmartWay approved? By wheel position: Steer / Drive / Trailer Retreads approval expected Q3 2011 Open shoulder drive tires under review EPA has established rolling resistance values by wheel position that companies must meet Rolling resistance coefficient Values will be continually reduced over time i.e 2014
