Well I would have to say the ecopia tires are one of the lowest rolling resistance tires around and one of the longer lasting too.
Only disadvantage is the price.

I would have to say one of the best for price, quality, low rolling resistance and longevity is the Yokohama avid ascend.
I have had them on 4 different vehicles, a Toyota mini van, Hyundai sonata, new bug and now the leaf.

But I think I prefer the ecopia tires on the leaf only because I can get a little more range out of them. That is literally the only thing I like about them.
The number one thing I don't like about the ecopia is the price, the ride isn't that great, comparing traction between the ecopia and yokos isn't even fair, they appear to both last about the same amount of miles.

You will probably pay around $100 more for a set of ecopia tires over those Yokohama ascend tires.
