I'd opt for something else, more specifically a low rolling resistance tire. There are many options in that size and tirerack now allows you to sort via LRR.

I was jsut seeing if any one knew about these tires. hydroedges and b381's are too expensive to justify. I would never get my money back out of them. And i can get hankooks at a little over cost and 100 dollar rebate right now. thats why i asked about hankooks, they seem to have excellent reviews.

Woops, yeah you are right. When you search for tires, in the left hand column, LRR is an option at the end to sort by.

Here is a sort for all 185/65R14s that are LRRs:

I think I'm going with the h727's, they have good reviews, good price, and a tire w/ a 100k warranty has to have some hard tread that should roll good.
