I just bought a set of Nokian wrg2 tires and they are supposed to be LRR. They are working really well for me although I have not collected enough data yet. Incredibly quiet even on wet roads. Max 51 PSI with a canola silica compound. They have your size in an all season i3 I think. 620/A/A They are a very green comany as tire companies go. The first to offer non toxic tires.

Also there is the bridgestone RE92 XL which is an OEM for the fist gen Prius. They seem to be an OK tire and LRR. (50 PSI) Mediocre reviews though.

There is also the BS B381 which is the lowest RR tire going.
Vortex generators are old tech. My new and improved vortex alternators are unstoppable.

I used tirerack.com to research tires rated at 51 PSI :


Mine don't seem to be available in your size, .

The Sumitomo HTR 200 is available in a 175/65-14 and a taller 175/70-14. Max pressure is 51 PSI. It's no B381, but it's cheaper and available in your size. And it's one of Green Seal's recommended tires. I wish they made them for 12" wheels.
