A different type of test you could try with the accelerometer would echo the test that Metro did. You could measure your acceleration from a dead stop down a hill. You would probably need a very accurate accelerometer to get any accurate results, but it wouldn't ware out your tires. Also, if you got a good constant slope hill, you could see your acceleration decrease as you picked up speed due to aero-forces.
