Best Low Rolling Resistance tire

For my VX,

Sumitomo HTR T4 165/70R13 are still the best LRR tire to buy?

I don't mind to put 155/80R13 or 175/65R13

I got my new catalog in the mail from TireRack today. They have an article on LRR tires, highlighting the Bridgestone Ecopia, Goodyear Assurance FuelMax, and Michelin HydroEdge GreenX tires. They are available now on their site.

But These dunlops size are not offer in north america in these size

165/70R13 OEM size
Sumitomo HTR T4
Bridgestone RE92

But These Bridgestone RE92 size are not offer in north america in these size

155/80R13 (3.04% off)
Kumho Solus KR21

We dont have no more a wide choice of tire in these size. 13" are more difficult to find now, even more in these size.
