List of Low Rolling Resistance Tires

Here is a list of Consumer Report's tires that achieved their best rolling resistance rating. The tires at the top of the list are rated higher overall.

All Season
Michelin X Radial
Michelin Agility Touring
Michelin Harmony
Toyo 800 Ultra
Sumitomo HTR T4

Performance All Season
Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus
Continental ContiPremierContact H

All Season Ultra High Performance
General Exclaim UHP
Continental ContiExtremeContact

Glad to see my General Exclaim UHPs got on the list this year (they were brand new last year).

Here are the light duty tires CR has listed as achieving their best rolling resistance rating. Again, higher overall rated tires are closer to the top of the list.

Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684
Michelin Cross Terrain
Continental ContiTrac SUV

Continental ContiTrac TR
