Default 2018 Best fuel saving Tires for 06 MK4 Golf TDI

Hi Guys looks like its been years since someone made thread about today 2018 best tires. I need Summer tires only. Best there is on the market today.

So far i found only :MICHELIN - ENERGY SAVER they also have MICHELIN - ENERGY SAVER "PLUS" but its been there for many many years, did they come up with any better tires than this?

I don't think those tires are distributed by Michelin USA. That being said, you want LRR to save money, right? At $177 (non-Plus) for what's in stock, the money you'll save vs a Michelin Premier A/S (Tirerack) for $120 each, well you're not going to be saving money. EVen the lower priced Energy Saver Plus is more expensive. Summer tires are also not gifted with longevity also, compared to the Premier A/S (640 A A). You can treat them as 3-season tires if you go with winter tires in the winter.

Tires are not a magic elixir to great Mpg, personal driving habits are what dictates the Mpg outcome!

Of course, but every little bit helps, especially when we get a choice to make e.g. when tires are worn and need replacement.

The best practical LRR tire I have found is the Nokian Entyre 2.0. Note that it is not an OEM tire because Nokian doesn't sell to the OEMs. It is on a par for quality with Michelin but ata lower proce point.

I have heard good things about these. Also very high mileage warranty. Tire rack is my usual place to check these things. Long lasting tires tend to have a high (700 or more) UTQG score. Excellent rating by consumers.

There are others there for less money as well.

Nokian WR-G3. I had them for about three years and they gave me 5 mpg more. Nokian calls them "all weather tires", not "all season", because Winter in Miami, is not the same as Winter in Duluth. At first I didn't believe it, so I checked and double checked for about 6 weeks before I posted it, but it was true...5 mpg more. I got them, and all my Nokians from Tires by Web. here's the link
