Tire Suggestions...

I'm looking for "CHEAP" tires for my Commuter
I drive 120 miles/day, mostly 55/60mph 2 lane highways

im in a 2001 Prius
it's got 14" wheels
currently sporting 175/65-14

these sizes fit easily on the stock wheels
185/60-14, 185/65-14, 195/60-14, 205/55-14



I've been told the car should have xl tires (xtra load) but it's only about 3K lbs
what do you guys think?

what about LRR (Low Rolling Resistance) tires?
are they worth paying a bit more for?

any suggestions?

$41 each (stock size)
