Several years ago there were 4 low resistant tires listed here.  Does anyone
still have that list?  My Toyota dealer has no idea what a low resistant
tire is.  I gave the list to them back then.  They said they had a better
tire.  It lowered my average mileage 10 mpg.  A month later I complained.
They changed them.  It then lowered my mileage only 5 mpg.  Of course they
lost the list.  I'll be getting a new set soon somewhere but It won't be
from them.  Help.

"low rolling resistance"

 Any tire design is necessarily a "tradeoff" balance or properties. LRR
might mean that the tire won't last as long, etc.

They are usually rock-hard, last forever, but don't grip.
