John has done an amazing job of documenting loads of useful
information about these cars on his www site. However, this
information on tires hasn't been updated to include any reference to
the LRR factors of the tires. He simply refers to them as LRR. Not
specifying the LRR factor.

Again. I am NOT being critical. John has provided me with loads of
very useful information, in a format that is much easier to read than
the YAWN owner's manual. He should be commended.

If you are looking for replacement tires, you may need to do more

Check the price at TireRack.com, especially Kumho tires. You should see
serious savings, even with freight and installation.

I replaced my 2004's with Michelin Harmonys. My gas mileage has remained the
same and the tires handle well.

i've been buying Kumho's at tirerack.com for yrs now for my VW, but my they
don't make any in my size for new prius touring ed.- unfortunatly,
bridgestone and michelin look like the main choices.
