    I posted a thread similar to this, but nobody replied, so I'll post something similar.

    I currently have blizzak ws70s on my car, and I'm wondering what the coefficient of friction is for those tires and summer tires such as energy saver a/s or ecopia ep422. I'm trying to pinpoint how many more miles per gallon I will get in the summertime with these tires. I have only found comparisons between different LRR tires, but none comparing winter tires to summer tires. If anyone switches between winter tires and summer tires throughout the year, could you let me know what the change in MPG is between each set of tires? Thanks!!

    I use Nokian WR. G2 tires all year around and love them! They are great year around all weather tires that perform in all conditions. I have no hassle with storage or conditions. Rotate every 10,000 and enjoy. A little expensive, but worth it. :) H
