I've browsed through all of them - thanks for posting them all! - & some
were pretty helpful.  But... most, incl. the last, focused on LRR
tires/getting the best MPG rather than handling in a variety of road
conditions.  Quote from the article of one of the links: "Every Prius comes
from the factory with Low Rolling Resistance tires.  They handle like crap
but their job is to provide less resistance than a regular tire and in turn
increase gas mileage."  I love great mileage, but value safety/security even
more. ;-)

Thanks.  But... heh. To me, buying new tires is kind of like getting a new
roof - necessary, but a pretty boring way to spend $$. ;-)

Let me guess:  English is not your native language.


Thats because you're so used to tuning out reality.

Ask him/dbu (dbu' or dbu. or dbu"....) about the existence of temperate rain
forests. ;-P  (That argument goes back years - acc. to dbu (and his various
usernames) the only rain forests that exist are jungles/tropical rain
forests.

Actually, there are temperate rain forests:

Temperate rainforests are rainforests in temperate regions. They can be
found in North America (in the Pacific Northwest, the British Columbia
Coast, and in the inland rainforest of the Rocky Mountain Trench east of
Prince George), in Europe (parts of the British Isles such as the coastal
areas of Ireland, Scotland, southern Norway, parts of the western Balkans
along the Adriatic coast, as well as in the North West of Spain and coastal
areas of the eastern Black Sea, including Georgia and coastal Turkey), in
East Asia (in southern China, Taiwan, much of Japan and Korea, and on
Sakhalin Island and the adjacent Russian Far East coast), in South America
(southern Chile) and also Australia and New Zealand.

Here's a map of where they are:
