New Tires Needed - Help?
So I got a bolt in a tire on my way home yesterday. Took it in to get it patched, and turns out the tire is splitting from the inside out.

Resolution: 2 new tires (the other two are newish (stole from previous car) and don't need replaced) for the Lumina.

I have questions about several issues, here we go?

Vehicle: 1993 Chevy Lumina Euro
Size: 205/70 R15
Front: Uniroyal Tiger Paw AWP II

Rear: to be replaced

Because I'm only doing two, I'll stick with the same size (205/70).

Low-rolling resistance tires - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The wiki page that I don't trust shows the TP AWP II to be very LRR, but for P225/60R16. I couldn't fine the AWP II on TireRack, but the Tiger Paw ST shows 23 pounds for 215/60R16 and 22 pounds for 205/70R15.

Does anyone else have info on these? Did I do good "accidentally" when I got the AWP II's for the previous car?

I did find this thread:

I'm debating getting a new pair to replace the bad rear tires.

Q. Tiger Paw AWP II's or Sumitomo HTR T4's?

I'm also looking at new tires for the Matrix. I'm trying not to get too hung up on LRR tires though. How are they really tested? At MFG specs? At max sidewall? How do normal tires compare to LRR at max sidewall? Probably a little bit better, but I still think you gain the most by just pumping up your tires. In any case, I think I'm going to go with Pirelli P6 tires on mine.
