I am looking at buying some 305-40-23 tires and i see there are Kumho, Falekn, Nitto, Toyo i was wondering what kind of good or bad things can you say about eah brand. I know what the oneline reviews say but that mean nothing unless you hear it from actual people who use the tires. Which one do you guys think has less road noise?
Re: What is the best brand of tire road noise etc.?
I have had the Toyo's in the past and got good use out of them. They have a real soft sidewall so the ride is very comfortable. I got good wear out of them, 50,000 + miles. The road noise is good too, nothing too loud that you can hear. I would recommend them. I got 23's too and got Pirelli's on this set. (305 35 23). These are little loud, but the traction is very sticky and worth the little tire noise. The wear seams to be pretty good, but cannot really tell b/c I have only 4,000 miles on them. For comfort go with the Toyo's, if you need performance go with the Pirelli's. ( They have 2 different Pirelli Scorpion's, the new ones are Pirelli Scorpion Assemtricos, they are the improved ones and ones to go with)
