Hankook Ventus V12 EVO K110 rolling resistance

Bought four brand new V12's this weekend. Noticed that the rolling resistance isn't good.

There are lots of hills where I live and I always put my stick in Neutral when going downhill. Noticed that I'm not going as far and as fast with these tires.

Anyone else experience this?

I have them and haven't noticed that. I do run 5psi more in these than I usually do though.

no, but cruising in neutral is not the smartest thing.

thanks for the safety message

i'm running 235/40/18's. i'm comparing them to my previous tires which were continental extremes.

Was getting 28MPG; now looks to be 25.5MPG.

i do like the hankook's...just didn't know about the rolling resistance.

You coast? I didn't know you could do that... I'm always either accelerating or braking.
