What is a green tyre?

Question from colin, 26/10/2010 :What is a green tyre?
Answer by rezulteo, 26/10/2010 :

A green tyre is a tyre that has been optimised for low rolling resistance, thus limiting your fuel consumption (by limiting the heating of the tyre and hence its deformation, which increases the rolling resistance of the tyre resulting in a loss of energy).

For more information about green tyres, take a look atour article on the subject.
