Hey Trevor, I'm all in favor of getting better fuel economy. My concern is that these newer "fuel efficient" tires also cost more, sometimes a lot more. Will the increased fuel efficiency offset the increased cost (or hopefully, more than cover the price difference....therefore a real return for the investment) between these and say "regular" tires over the life of the eco tire? Has Tirerack thought about doing an independent analysis as to whether these tires will actually save your customers money over the usable life of the tire?
