i'd probably add too that sometimes walmart tires are so much cheaper that the extra 5% in FE gained from lrr tires that cost almost double would never be made up. I ended up saying F the Bridgestone/Michelin LRRs and just went for walmart tires this time around on the smoke bomb. Tires were 52$ ea vs ~90$ ea for LRR tires.
Also, they mount them for free.
So add $15/tire saved.
