"Not exactly. The size of the contact patch does relate to rolling resistance. However, the size of the contact patch is not linearly related to the inflation pressure nor is rolling resistance."

Sorry i was trying to get to this conclusion but i was in a hurry. i was also just wondering if the bulg of the tread could have a pretty big factor in RR for example my dad has 31 inch tires with 1/4 inch bulg will i have 29's with 3/4 inch bulg both pairs are new?? Thanks agian
