    So with ES A/S in 1935/65R15 gone, which tire is a king of the hill now?

    TrueContact?
    EP422?
    eNTYRE 2.0?

    I do very well with Ecopia ep -20. Only come in one size 195 /65 r15. My last two tanks went over 1000 kilometers and only took 39.7 ltr.s to fill. H

    Mine came with EP20. Unless something changes in the interim my next will be TrueContact.

    If I had 15" I'd likely go with EP20. Their RR is hard to beat, right from the time of install. They do get noisy with age, but I can live with it, not terrible.

    Is the Energy Saver A/S truly dead? It's showing on Michelin Canada still, fwiw.

    ES A/S are still available in limited quantities. I just recently ordered a set from Sam's and installed.

    These are still King of the Hill in my opinion.
