User Piwoslaw updated some good info from Autobild.
Also interesting are following pdf:
TUEV SUD report on:
TÜV SÜD Automotive Tire Benchmark Test -2009205/55 R16 91 V: Wet & Dry Performance -Lifetime -Rolling Resistance/Fuel EconomyReport No. 76236753-2
Bridgestone Turanza ER300, Continental PremiumContact 2, Goodyear EfficientGrip, Michelin Energy SAver, Pirelli P6 Cinturato Ecoimpact.

autobild sports car test

European Comission lots of info (there is important info hidden in the zips and endless and boring documents ): radius dependance of tire rolling resistance, rolling resistance of large sports tires being better than small "eco" ones, etc. all the test are anonimously so make and model comparision (or brands: van, car eco, car uhp, etc.) couldn't be done but its interesting.
Energy: Labelling of tyres - European commission

Energy: Public consultation - European commission
where you could find these working documents and analyses of tires, summary from independent test with assessments on specific tires (with make and model), etc:
