Sorry, but in my old age I've learned to take manufacturers claims with some cautious pessimism. Rarely do we know what they are using to generate their numbers. For example, what tire or tires did they compare the new tire to to come with what appears to be some pretty substantial savings (and how many miles a year were they basing that claim on). That's why I was suggesting that maybe the Rack could do some reasonably unbiased testing like you do with other tires. This test may, however, include some different numbers crunching.
