    what is a low rolling resistance? how would i know that with the tires im gonna buy?

    I've read on some sites that says 13" wheels is hard to find with a low resistance thing is that correct? BTW how much PSI should I put on these tires? 175/70??

    The tire manufacturer should list this criteria for the model tire they are selling.

    Not sure about 13" tires and LRR. Search around and share with us your findings!

    In the United States, vehicle manufacturers are required by law to list tire pressure for each model vehicle on a sticker usually found in the driver's door area. Tire manufacturers also list a maximum pressure on the sidewall of the tire. Look for this information next time you head out for a road trip and use it when you check your car's tire pressures.

    Most drivers stick to the pressures listed by the vehicle manufacturer. Service & repair shops do this as well. Many drivers who want to reduce their fuel consumption will increase the air pressure in their tires, up to (and sometimes over) the maximum pressure listed on the tire's sidewall.

    Many would advise to increase the air pressure in the tires as it reduces operating costs by reducing fuel consumption.

    Many would advise against exceeding the pressure listed by the vehicle manufacturer due to less available traction.

    I would advise against exceeding the maximum pressure of the tire. In fact, I would advise against exceeding the pressures listed by the vehicle manufacturer unless you, as a driver/operator, fully understand the potential loss of traction that results from the increased air pressure.

    but would it be to low for a 175/70 wheels to be pump upto 32psi as the sticker shows on the driver side? as my oem 15s is either on 32 or 34, wouldn't it look deflated? im sorry for my ignorance here hehe I thought that if I change tires it should have a different amount of air/psi.

    The difference between inflating your tires to 32 or 34 psi is really small. If you inflated your tires to 32 psi and then added another 2 psi, you wouldn't see any difference in the way the tires looked. 32 psi would definitely not look deflated.

    Just curious...how much do each of those wheel/tire combinations weigh?

    Those are great photos, by the way.

    The VX wheels and half-worn Altimax RT43s are 23.2 lbs, and the new Hankooks on Konig Heliums are 27.8 lbs.

    Thanks...I forgot you have 195-50-15s on those Heliums instead of the 185-55-15s that I am running.
