Road noise- quiet tires

Postby Gdook » Wed Dec 14, 2016 7:03 pm

Hi all. I was asking earlier about quieter tires as I had to replace those on my 2012 Volt. There were a number of suggestions. These were subjective "guesses". I went with the Pirelli P7 Cinturato all season. I have since found some info on line from "America's tire". the P7 is actually rated fairly poor for sound. The best on this list is the Bridgestone Potenza RE97 AS (2) $145.00 9.0 9.5 10.0 10.0 10.0 10.0 N/A 9.8 100% The 3rd number is the sound and the 100% at the end is how many people would buy this one again.

These (Pirelli) are not bad but con't compare well on this chart to the Bridgestone , only 8.8 in the quiet department with 91% return buyers.
Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season
Plus (93) $147.00 8.9 8.9 8.8 8.9 9.2 8.9 8.6 8.9 91%
So if you care about quiet, and I do, make sure you do your homework. Try to find some hard number evaluations instead of word of mouth opinions.
Four more years and I will be able to try some others. Good luck.
