    Tire Noise

    Not happy with the tire noise on my 2013 XTS AWD Platinum Series Cad, Currently have Goodyear 19" tires. Very noisy my 2010 Buick La Cross had a better ride. A lot of noise as you are coming to a stop feels like car is stuck in low gear?

    I know this is a little older thread, but I agree with you. I got our 2013 xts 2 weeks ago and the ride & quietness of our last 2 Buick Enclaves were better than our xts. We have the Goodyear tires also, I don't know if it's them or just not enough insulation in the car.
    I'm very disappointed.

    Probably because they have run flat tires. Run flats are always more noisier than regular non flat tires.

    Not so! The Bridgestone summer run-flats on my ATS Premium are much quieter than the ones on the XTS Premium that I had as a loaner. My car is substantially quieter on the highway than the plusher XTS, which came as quite a surprise to me. The standard all-season Michelin run-flats that come on all other ATSs are also reasonably quiet, s it's just those damn Goodyears, I'm afraid.

    There have been other treads about tire noise and lots of complaints about the Goodyear RS-2A tires on the XTS. I have a 2014 luxury model with 19" wheels. We also have a 2013 ATS 3.6 Performance with 17" wheels with Michelin Pilot run flats. My experience is opposite to most others. The Goodyears are quiet and the Michelins are noisy,especially on concrete.
