VICTORIA, B.C. –Michelin North America is lauding the B.C. government for increasing the load limits on “super singles.”
The B.C. Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure increased the load limits for new-generation wide-base single tires (also known as super singles) that are size 455/55R22.5 from 7,700 kilograms to 8,500 kilograms last month – making them equivalent to those trucks using dual tires.
GREENVILLE, S.C. — It isn’t just boasting anymore. Single wide-based truck tires are as much as 10 percent more fuel efficient that a set of duals, confirms the U.S. Dept. of Energy.
