ENERGYWISE™ approved tyres

Tyres might all look similar, but their performance varies greatly. The ENERGYWISE™ approval mark for tyres is an easy way to tell if tyres deliver safety and fuel efficiency.

About ENERGYWISE approved tyres

ENERGYWISE approved tyres must meet ENERGYWISE standards for both fuel efficiency and safety (braking in the wet). The lower the rolling resistance of a tyre, the easier it is to turn, and the less fuel (or electricity) your car will use.

Saving with ENERGYWISE approved tyres

Switching to ENERGYWISE approved tyres could save you up to $500 over the life of the tyres, or up to 15 cents per litre. This is calculated based on the following assumptions:

  • your vehicle is not currently fitted with fuel efficient tyres
  • vehicle fuel efficiency of your car - 10 litres/100 km
  • cost of fuel - $2.00 per litre
  • fuel saving due to having ENERGYWISE approved tyres - 7.5%
  • having a set of four fuel efficient tyres
  • tyre life - 40,000 km
  • price difference between an ENERGYWISE approved tyre and a standard tyre - $25 (per tyre)

If you have a battery electric or plug-in hybrid vehicle, then the cost savings are significantly lower, but the use of ENERGYWISE approved tyres will help you maximise the distance you can go on a charge.

How ENERGYWISE approved tyres qualify

ENERGYWISE approved tyres must meet performance benchmarks for both fuel efficiency and wet braking (stopping distance in the wet). To register ENERGYWISE approved tyres, manufacturers, importers and distributors submit their registration to us for approval.

We check performance using internationally accepted test methods and standards. The criteria for ENERGYWISE approved fuel efficient tyres are similar to those used in Japan, Korea, and the European Union.
