    20 " tires and noise ???

    I have had 20" on other vehicles and always had tires that were very noisy on the road. Are there any recommendations for 20" tires that look good and don't make so much noise, maybe in a 245/40x 20 ???

    I'm not sure if the size your looking for is offered but take a look at the Nitto Invo. They look really different have great grip and I honestly don't hear any excess road noise. Even when I switched from my stock 18 to my 20.

    Re: 20 " tires and noise ???

    I just got a set of 20" tires for mine. They are 245/40 R20 Continental Extreme Contact DW.

    The Pros are: Very quiet, dont hear any more noise over stock. Ride quality is slightly better than my stock 18" tires. Great price, $180 ea for a high mileage Z rated 20" tire. Wet traction is amazing, seriously.

    Cons: Steering response is noticeably less than my stock Michelin's, I have less sidewall but more body roll, IDK.

    Even considering the slightly worse handling, I would buy them again.
