Low rolling resistance tires?
« on: February 16, 2015, 08:09:08 AM »
Anyone out there purchase low rolling resistance tires for their car?  Do they really save money on gas or it is just a gimmick?

I've been using Bridgestone Ecopia tires for 2 years now, and like how they still perform pretty decent in the snow.  I've been saving about 1 mpg, which isn't much, but they are going to last longer with my lots of highway driving, which is the reason I purchased them.  I got a good deal ordering them through Costco.
