Oh, and get the most "ribby" (least "blocky) tread design you can find.

Or if you're like me and don't mind using the spare from time to time, run old nearly worn out tires.

I'm with Ernie on this issue of load carrying capacity: Use the largest size tire that will fit in the fenderwells. Larger tires are directionally towards lower coefficients.
