SUV LRR tires

General Grabber HTS is the tire of choice for suv lrr tires

Wife's 2006 Mariner got 23MPG at 80MPH from Miami FL to Springfield MO.

Mileage on trips has always been 21-24MPG at 70mph or slightly higher.

That may be the case, but it seems like thin evidence to make a claim on LRR.

Rolling resistance is a tiny fraction of the load at highway speeds, and the speeds are not even the same.

What were the air temperatures? What was the wind speed and direction? Was there are lot of elevation change, and if so was it generally up or down? Were you using the A/C?

Sincerely, Neil
