What are LRR tires?

Well, I know what they are... but, where do you find them? Do you just ask for them @ the tire store? I'm not sure the tire store guys will know much about them...

Look for tires with a quiet/smooth ride, unaggressive tread, and high maximum pressure rating.

Also, ask for tires for the Prius, which uses specially-made LRR tires.

Often that describes the cheapest tires on the wall as well, and longer treadlife claimed does not always mean stiffer compound / lower rolling resistance. It usually indicates a lack of plasticizers used to extend tread life.

Does a stiffer compound mean LRR? If so, then I'll once again tout Bridgestone "Turanza T", which I abused for 70,000 miles and still had lots of tread, and which handled/rode well at their max 44psi when the car I used them on recommended much less.

yes, that was naughty of me to toy with you like that. But it was good for some cheap thrills.
