I noticed that my winter tires take about 10% more energy on top of the cold. I would like to see this option.

Yes! I was about to create a similar feature request. A simple Winter / All seasons / Summer toggle would probably be enough. But allowing users to create and reuse specific tires models would be awesome. There is so much differences between tire brands and models. Trying to pull efficiency statistics out of a dataset that does not account for tire differences will be off by a lot (temperature efficiency for example) (a good winter tire can be as good as an ok summer tire).

We should be able to use the existing Auto Tag system but instead of Starting and Ending Locations just say if Starting Date and a Ending Date and any drives that fall within that range get tagged as "Winter Tires" and any drives outside of that Range get tagged as All Season or Summer Tires.   We'd need to remember to adjust the actual dates to correspond to the installation and removal of course.....   

I would also like to expand this feature request for not just tires, but also for tagging the presence (or not) of other things that might affect range... like roof racks. I'd love to tag drives where I have skis or bikes on the roof as such (as well as when I have different rack setups on) so that I can look at efficacy impact by aerodynamic configuration :)

Agree -- Date or tag-based seems most useful.  I just changed tires and they so far appear to have remarked higher rolling resistance.   It would be nice to quantify that in the efficiency report rather than just guessing.

I think this feature would be excellent.

It could even grow into some form of maintenance log so you can track the number of miles driven on a specific set of tyres. This would be very useful to then flag an alert to rotate your tyres once you hit the advised number of miles (6k from memory).
