It would interesting to do a city route then a highway route with the donuts at 70 psi vs the Stones at 51. I would be willing to bet that based on your previous experiences with donuts that they would shine bright on the highway route based on lower aero drag and the stones might, or not, shine on the city route.

Seems like a load rating/aero drag compromise is what we are looking at.
If so, then the skinniest tire (preferably tall) with a high load rating is what we are after for overall performance.
