What tire did you replace? The OEM Firestones?Put them on mine last week. The noise is barely perceptible if you can even tell. The tread is a bit more aggressive so you "feel" the road feedback a little bit more. I am OCD with noise and change and I hesitated so long to the plunge, finally afterward, I have zero regrets. Plus they look good on the truck.
I think if I had to watch ONE thing about these tires is, There always seems to a stone or two in the treads, I have to imagine that they will kick them up on the highway.
What mostly convinced me of the tire was the 3-Peak Snowflake Rating and are rated well in all conditions. And now that I have witnessed that they are quiet I'm happy. It's a good pick.
Sorry not what I was asking . . .You say the CrossClimates are quiet. I am wondering what your PREVIOUS tires were as I would think the noise level you report for the new Michelins is relative to what you used to have for tires. Thanks!It's the thread title "Michelin CrossClimate SUV" 245/60R18, I added it to the post.
* Approximately: $830US from Costco using the current rebate (plus taxes and other fees). but they do not do alignments.
* Approximately: $915US from Town Fair Tire (plus taxes and other fees) with a 4 wheel alignment.
Ah, I see. Yeah replacing the OEM Firestone Destinations. I've always liked the ride and low noise of the truck , so I didn't really want to give up anything with different tires. But I never liked the Firestones in hard packed pavement snow. It's not really their purpose. I wanted to maintain the ride quality the best I could and still get a 3-Peak Snowflake rating. These are it, they don't change the characteristic of the ride and noise, but look a "little" better...imho.Sorry not what I was asking . . .You say the CrossClimates are quiet.
