Tire Rolling Resistance PDF

This was requested by want2buyvx, better late then never. ;P

It's a list of rolling resistances of tires made by Goodyear, Michelin, and BF Goodrich dated September 2005.

While newer tires may not be on the list there are quite a few still being made if you want to go for a lower rolling resistance for your next set of tires.

My '08 Cobalt XFE tires are listed here and a set of tires used on the Prius and a few other high fuel efficient vehicles.

If anyone can find a newer version or one with some of the other manufacturers tires listed please add that to this post.
