I just recently put the continental HSL2's on my steers, have about 20k on them so far and so far they are wearing really good. They have a RR of 103 I believe but the comparible drive tires have a RR of I believe 122. So I believe Im going to go with the M720's. Have Bridgeston R250 ED's on the trailer and have been very pleased with them so far. Not as low on a trailer tire as it could be but very few good 16 ply 255/70 step deck tires available with low RR. I know another driver did all the homework on some Goodyear's with a RR in the low 90's but heard that right after I had just put 8 new ones on the trailer so will look into those on the next go around.

I'm using Michelin XDA Energy RR of 99 but they are not available in your size. One of the other operators at the company I'm leased to is having much success with the Bridgestone 720's.

They 720 has RR of 110 and the XDA's are 99 BUT he will get at least 75,000 more miles than I and the Bridgestones are about $50 per tire less. I believe they are available in your size.

I am running the Bridgestone 720's in 24.5 LP and am very happy with them. I took off Michelin XDN2's and gained about .3/mpg.

you don't want to ask KR about those BFG DR 444 drives.... they have really bad rolling resistance according to the calculator he uses. better by far to use the BFG ST 244 All Position instead or the Bridgestone M720 drives

I suggest you check out the rolling resistance calculators in the "Tool Box" at Michelin .com or Yokohama .com under Commercial Truck Tires. if you play around in these Calculators you will be better able to make your decision based on your operation and you can easily check the availability of your size tires

The less the RR the less miles you will get on the tires. Its a trade off. I also have the HSL2 on the steers. Have 90k and wearing well on a heavy Volvo front end. Still have 15/32s
