Light Truck FUEL EFFICIENCY testing

This video shows actual footage of the light truck testing with the new eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheel.

  • Tested various wheel wheel designs for maximum fuel economy




Fuel Economy Testing

The eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheel was tested against other wheels on the same vehicle on the same day to accurately determine the fuel savings that can be achieved. The test vehicle was a 2013 GMT900 Light Duty Truck. Four wheels were tested, including the production wheel available on the vehicle from the dealer, the light-weight backbone of the new eVOLVE™ wheel, an existing Chromtec® composite wheel and the eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheel with Wheel-CFD™ Leadership.

The lowest weight wheel does not achieve the best MPG!

The eVOLVE™ Hybrid Wheels achieved a 0.76 mpg highway vehicle improvement on a GMT900 Light Duty Truck via EPA test protocol by a third party.*
