RFT vs Regular: Affects on MPG?

Does any have positive or negative experience on the gas mileage differences between a RFT and non-RFTs? I'm kind of curious.

MPG = how you use the throttle :P not how soft or stiff the ride is

End of Thread.

imo, it's all about the tire pressure

I know some tire manufactures DO make tires for diesel's that can get better fuel consumption over standard tires. I think Michelin markets them under a GREEN label. They claim up to 6% better MPG.

I have never seen any eco or green tires for a 1-er though.

There are tires intended for getting better mileage, particularly for hybrids. You won't find them in 1 sizes.

If anything, a non-runflat of the same category as a runflat will weigh less and on that basis give you marginally better mileage.

I just wanted to feedback from the owners that switched from the original RFTs to NRFTs if they noticed any perceptible difference.

@ Chesterfan - agreed - but if driving style is the same with both sets of wheel. I'd like to know if anyone has noticed any differences.
