    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)

  6. Thoughts on Winter Tires for Green Cars

    Wheels & Tires - Chevy Volt
    Since I did all this research on Winter Tires for my new car, I thought it might be helpful to others. The latest thing in Tires for fuel economy is Low Rolling Resistance (LRR), which can make a 5%-10% difference in range. The tires that come with the Chevy Volt are LRR, but All-Season or...
