I think the digital gauge works well, but it does mean that when I drive, I pay too much attention to when the lights go out, and fret when I get just a few miles fewer out of the first light, as I have done with the Pirelli P3000's.
Incidentally, the economy has suffered a bit, but the wet weather grip is much better. Horses for courses, I suppose.
As a general rule of thumb the better the grip the higher the rolling resisatance - it all about compromise - you also have to consider the better the grip the quicker they wear - so you pays your money and takes your chance
