Although tire manufacturers are making technological leaps in tire design and rubber compounding year after year, they all still face what they call the “target conflict” between mileage and rolling resistance. This means that improving one of these characteristics in the tire typically reduces performance in the other area. Is it possible to find a tire that’s the best of both worlds?
