Excellent Report

This is a great report -- I used it to purchase my latest set of treads. I attribute a decent percentage increase to my over-inflated LRR's.

For more up-to-date info, Consumer Reports has rolling resistance data in their tire reviews. The problem is that it requires an online subscription to the site or the magazine. You may be able to check your local library and locate a hard-copy for reference -- but those are the only references that I've been able to find actual testing on this subject.
