Commercial Fleet Tire Digest: Designing a Good Tire Evaluation

April 26, 2016
Maximizing tire removal miles and increasing the number of tire casings that can make it through multiple retread cycles will keep tire cost/mile numbers low.

Commercial trucking fleets are always trying to lower their tire cost/mile. According to the September 2015 study by ATRI the average cost per mile in 2014, depending on the specific service vocation, had increased to between .04 and .05 per mile compared to .029 per mile in 2009. Maximizing tire removal miles and increasing the number of tire casings that can make it through multiple retread cycles will keep tire cost/mile numbers low. The tire make and model that you are running in your fleet on steer, drive and trailer positions can have a major impact on your tire cost/mile number.
