Heat, Tires and Maintenance - or lack thereof - as an Alternative Energy

Energy dissipates -- through burning or heat waves.  Heat is a "waste product" of many energy uses, even with tires.  So it is important to understand how to manage heat to extend the wearability of tires...and thus save money and energy use.  Well maintained tires give better gas mileage -- saving energy.  And well maintained tires last longer -- reducing the need for new or retreat tires to be manufactured, transported, installed and reclaimed at the end of their generational life.
