Micheline has LRR, for good grip at high psi, the extra money is worth your life

Got to new Pirelli P6 tires installed somewhere in this tank or previous. Rolling resistance is low but I would not recommend this tire. It does not roll round and follows grooves in payment like some Bridgestone tires have for me. Michelin and Toyo do not do like those. 54.32 edit

04/25/2009 612 10.312 2.06 Bought some new Pirelli P6 tires but have not installed them yet. 59.34 edit
04/06/2009 589 10.82 1.86 Removed the Michelin Harmony tires and installed used Toyo 175/65 R14 tires. Corrected for the smaller tires. The improvement is more than one would expect from the tire size change. Don't know about those Michelin tires. Sold them on Craig's List. 54.43 edit
03/16/2009 527 10.363 1.699 Pulled the Michelin tires after about 300 miles of this tank. 50.85 edit
02/25/2009 320 6.291 1.72 Those new Michelin Harmony tires are really draggy. I did not expect that. 50.86 edit
02/15/2009 550 10.25 1.76 I just installed new Michelin tires. I think they are going to cost me a few miles per gallon. Those old Toyo Z800 Ultra tires were about like people describe those Bridgestone RE92's. Anyway the quieter ride is maybe worth a few mpg. It sounds like I am going soft when gas only costs $1.75. Oh well. Maybe a stimulized plug in hybrid system will get me going someday. 5
