Went to my local tire shop and they were having a special on them. Got good reviews just curious about the fuel efficiency rating on energy savings ( less drag on rolling)

If they are made in China, pass. International brand tires made in China are usually fine, but Chinese branded tires are generally inferior.

This guy maintains a decent list of LRR tires for EVs:

I've never heard of this tire brand nor model.

From a bit of digging (e.g. http://www.cordovantires.com/Warranty.aspx), it seems Cordovan is one of many brands at http://www.tbcbrands.com/.

I believe that every tire has a rating of its "rolling resistance coefficient"? or how much drag the tire has?
