Yours won't be LRRs, compaq,

Yours won't be LRRs, compaq, but 3 mpg, that's a damn good deal. I would go with whatev the insights use, because people pump those up to 55 psi and get good results out of them.

45 PSI Always

I've always run 45 PSI and haven't had any unusual wear in the middle and can still take the exit ramps at 60. I'm thinking of getting either the Insight or Civic Hybrid tires when the current ones wear out (which is soon, and snow is on its way) - but I'm sure handling will suffer :-(

ok, I just want to know for

ok, I just want to know for sure because I got mine for $279 installed and balanced and they handle way better then my previous tires.

I just don't see the point in buying special tires for a lot more and getting only 1-2mpg.

Ah, gotcha. Bigger tires

Ah, gotcha. Bigger tires will also cut down on your mpg by the way, especially if you get 21 chrome spinners. --_^

"Unsprung Weight"

Reducing the diameter but also, based on racing principles, the lighter the weight of the rim has a huge impact on not only the handling, but in fuel economy (The "Unsprung Weight" Principle). It takes less energy to get them going and less to stop (like a flywheel). Unfortunately, lightweight rims tend to come in larger sizes (unless you source them from a hybrid).
