Tyres have been synonymous with cars since the dawn of the auto age. Over the years the auto industry has gone through a sea of changes and the same goes for the tyre industry as well. With newer challenges like tighter emission norms and better fuel efficiency facing the auto industry, Apollo Alnac 4G low rolling tyres is a direction to a greener future.

So, what are low rolling resistance tyres?  Rolling resistance is a term used for the effort required by the engine to move a vehicle. Internal friction in tread and casing and traction with the road causes rolling resistance. Tyre makers like Apollo have developed rubber compounds and tread patterns to reduce friction that results in lesser tailpipe emission and better fuel efficiency.

Here are the key advantages for using the Apollo Alnac 4G low resistance car tyre.

Improved Fuel Efficiency/ Saving Money:

About 5-15% of total fuel consumption goes into overcoming rolling resistance. When inflated to the optimum pressure, a low resistance tyre can improve your car or SUV’s fuel efficiency. That’s why these tyres come as standard on mass-market vehicles, as they allow carmakers to adhere to newer eco-labelling standards.  When you are spending less on fuel, you are making a profit with every kilometre. You can save up to Rs. 6,000 per year on fuel with low resistance car tyres. So, in the long run, these tyres can help you recoup a significant part of your investment.

Good for the Environment:

Lesser fuel consumption means lesser emissions. With several Indian cities featuring in the top pollution indexes of the world, that is something we sorely need. Apart from lower tailpipe emissions, there is a certain amount of environmental impact in the manufacturing of tyres. Tyre makers like Apollo are also exploring new fabrication techniques for minimising environmental impact, making it a win-win situation for greener future and customers alike.

Better Handling & Control:

Contrary to popular belief that efficiency and performance do not go hand in hand, the Apollo Alnac 4G not only improves efficiency but also offers a dash of performance. Low resistance tyre makers are now using silica in the tyre compound. Silica is a sand-like substance which improves tyre grip, giving you better handling and control on the road. So, your car will be zippier with these tyres.

Safer on the Road:

With summer temperatures soaring, it is not only the car’s engine but even tyres that undergo a lot of stress. At times this heat can result in tyre burst while driving. This can be especially dangerous on the highway in speeds excess of 60kmph.  Low resistance tyres also run cooler than standard tubeless tyres, which makes them less prone to damage from heat build-ups.

How to identify Low Rolling Resistance Tyres?

A low resistance tyre and a standard tubeless tyre may look and weigh the same but will differ in performance. Apollo sells multiple products under the Alnac line so make sure that you look for the Alnac 4G branding before you buy. You can always meet a tyre expert at an Apollo Tyre shop near you.

The Apollo Alnac 4G ticks all the right boxes for a good low resistance tyre, offering better fuel efficiency, lighter build, and superior control on dry and wet surfaces. The silica compound used by Apollo Tyres keeps the Alnacs running cool on hot surfaces, improving vehicle safety. If you are in the market for new tyres, the Alnac 4G can be the one for you.

You can buy the Alnac 4G online from leading e-commerce platforms or from a tyre shop near you. The tyre costs about Rs. 4,500 apiece.
