road noise and tires??

Postby musthavemuzk » Sun Jun 23, 2002 5:31 pm

not sure where i should have put this so if it needs to be moved then by all means move it.

with me lookin at wheels and tires. i am concerned a little about increased road noise from a better handling and better gripping tire.

is this the case?

are there any tires that are quieter than others?

Typically the higher mileage rated tires are made signifigantly harder than some that are only rated for 50K... Check out tread design mainly though, how the tread pattern is laid out is what will determine how much noise will actually be created.

Deadening can eliminate a lot of this issue though, but recall your moving parts are undergoing this same vibrations, so there is excess...

oh wise Yoda
i had forgotten all about the tread pattern. i had been told about that a while back from my dad.

of course i forget which means more noise, but i do recall the conversation slightly.

as for the offroad tires electricice.....no worries here as i have a passenger car and not a truck.

monty, read on tire-rack, they have ratings on various tires that you can see, and often user oppinions, I'm partial to my SP5000's (from dunlop) as a high performance all season, decent handling as well

guess i had been to tirerack, but had only glanced at it. did not realize that what you said could be part of the site.

this will have to wait for another week or so.
