List of Low Rolling Resistance Tires

Here is a list of Consumer Report's tires that achieved their best rolling resistance rating. The tires at the top of the list are rated higher overall.

All Season
Michelin X Radial
Michelin Agility Touring
Michelin Harmony
Toyo 800 Ultra
Sumitomo HTR T4

Performance All Season
Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus
Continental ContiPremierContact H

All Season Ultra High Performance
General Exclaim UHP
Continental ContiExtremeContact


Glad to see my General Exclaim UHPs got on the list this year (they were brand new last year).


Here are the light duty tires CR has listed as achieving their best rolling resistance rating. Again, higher overall rated tires are closer to the top of the list.

All-season
Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684
Michelin Cross Terrain
Continental ContiTrac SUV
BFGoodrich Radial Long Trail T/A

All-terrain
Continental ContiTrac TR

Have they been discontinued? This is a list of currently made tires. I do remember those being on the list from past years.

Were the tires tested at the same PSI or at their respective maximums?

Good question. The only thing they say is that the RR tests are done on a dynamometer.

I must ask, how do these tires fair in inclement weather (snow)? And will they hold a wet road in corners? I'm going to guess that to aceive low rolling resistaqnce they are a harder compound and require a little higher pressure?

Really, I don't know how else to get lower rolling resistance... Is there a good website to see all these characteristics?

what is the date on the consumer reports testing? I found a report up in the files section of cleanmpg.com, is this the same report or newer?

Also, I'm going to ask the same question again here since I didn't receive a good enough reply: http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...ient-2920.html

Which of these TYPES is the most fuel efficient?
