LRR tires

I am thinking of buying these tires at some point. The correct VX size tires weigh 14 pounds and are advertised as "considerably lower rolling resistance."

http://www.tiresunlimited.com/ALL%20...ed_quatrac.htm

I doubt anyone knows anything about them, but if anyone is looking for a LRR, might be worth a look.

As for overall performance they seem to be rated very well. Not sure about how LRR they are tho.

I considered these when looking at LLR tires but then went for the Kumho's in 155/80/13 to further reduce the contact area. These Quatracs are probably a good choice as well though.

yeah, but more contact area means you can take turns at higher speed and thus save gas by not having to accelerate as much again
