Aim for the proper size. Keep it calibrated to the brain and transmission.

Truck highway tires or all season tires will have the least amount of rolling resistance. Off road tires and All-terrain tires generally have a higher rolling resistance. I think Consumer Reports did an article on tires a couple of montha ago. Their tests include rolling resistance and their review charts show how they did.

I think Pirrelli Scorpions and a General Tire did better than most in the all terrain category.
