The link you provided is for general discussion of tires. This thread is specifically for the availability and selection of low resistance tires. Your Yokahama Avid Ascend is not a low resistance tire. VW dealer took advantage of you by selling you a generic tire.miamor wrote: ↑Tue Sep 27, 2022 6:18 pm HEY THIS IS A TECHNICAL TOPIC

Ah, I beg to differ. Are you stating fact or opinion?

I can use the facts:

- the coasting test is the same as it was on ecopia, from 60 to 30 MPH it goes .7mi

- the universal coding on sidewall lists treadwear 800, cheap crap is around 400

- a 100 mile trip at 66 MPH had over 20 mi remaining on GOM, and getting about 4mi/kWh

Your coasting test doesn't have enough data to draw a conclusion.

Try spending more effort on your methodology.

- Find a road, at least 10 miles long with some rolling hills.

- Ensure outdoor temperature doesn't fluctuate more than ~10 degrees.

- Repeat this exercise 3-4 times and record average kWh consumption.

It's great we are trying to use real world testing. However I wish you would have indicated if climate control was constant every time and what speed? And for the rest of our dear viewers, I think Mpulsiv means

Consistency is the key. Find a protocol and stick with it. I thought that I provided enough detail in simple test methodology. Let's add more details to the mix.

- Attempt to do the runs on the same day. It's irrelevant if you are doing this during cold winters or hot summers. As long as the temperature is consistent. Climate control is irrelevant as well. Just ensure that it's consistent.

- Find a road, at least 10 miles long with some rolling hills.

- Accelerate and stop as normally would. Do your best to maintain the same speed. Ideally, when roads are clear of traffic. Sunday mornings is the best, while majority of drivers are still sleeping I did my runs throughout the range (e.g., 0 - 50 mph).

- Ensure outdoor temperature doesn't fluctuate more than ~10 degrees.

- Repeat this exercise 3-4 times and record average
**miles/kWh**consumption.

**My assumption is that you know how to reset this in settings, for every drive test your attempt. If not, read the owner's manual.**

You can perform roll down tests on any hill to see how efficient Ecopia really is.

Sadly, 235/45/18 won't fit our e-Golf.

At this point it's safe to say that tire manufacturers won't focus their resources on small 205/55/16 low resistance tires. We are stuck with Bridgestone Ecopia 422 until e-Golf end-of-life.
