Ah, that's the one. 175/70-13 I see in the list - my size.

A couple of the others are available in 14's. GY Fuel Max and Br Ecopia that I found.

At another site, a member in a Fit was averaging 65+ mpg. He replaced TWO tires for a very high rolling resistance model, and his mileage dropped below 60. Imagine if he had replaced all four!

LRR Tires - Bridgestone Insignia SE200 - 89S vs. 89T

I just had four new tires installed on my 2007 Corolla and the technician installed two p195/65/R15 Bridgestone Insignia SE200 89Ss and two 89Ts. The little I know about tires tells me that the S/T refers to the speed rating. I also found that the 89Ts are manufactured in the US and the 89Ss in Japan. The technician claims that the 89T is the latest model and is better in every way. Does anyone know which of these two tires is better, or is there any difference? Does one have a lower rolling resistance rating? I am going back tomorrow to exchange out two of the tires, should I have them put on two new 89Ss or 89Ts? Thanks ahead of time for your help.

According to Tire Rack, there are 3 versions of 195/65R15 BS SE200's - and the one from Canada, and the US are not labled LRR, but the one from Japan is.

From the Consumer Reports website:

The new formulations seem to be working: Both new tire models fared well; the Michelin (Energy Saver A/S) was exceptional. It not only had the lowest rolling resistance of any allseason tire we’ve tested but also scored Very Good in dry and wet braking. It ranks second among all T-rated all-season tires.

The Cooper (GFE) finished midpack in the group. Its rolling resistance was not as low as the Michelin’s, but it performed well in all-weather grip, hydroplaning resistance, and emergency handling.

By comparison, the Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max, the model that had the lowest rolling resistance in our November 2009 test (available to subscribers), rated somewhat lower among the highly competitive performance H-rated tires, though it performed well in most respects and displayed decent allweather grip.
