I agree, put a set of the LTX M/S2 on my 2012 Double cab and couldn't believe the difference. All you can her driving down the road is the wind blowing over the truck.

i had the michelin ms2's on my truck for like 4 weeks now and they are a heck of a lot quieter than the factory bridgestones ever were. not to mention they handle great rain snow etc and last almost as long as a toyota truck!!

I put SAs on my Jeep (DD), 17X9. It was amazing how much quieter and smoother the ride was. The SAs replaced the BF Goodrich (AT/Mudders) that came stock.

When I wear out the stock ones on the Tacoma (DD) that will be what I go with.

Yep, they ride like stock tires and pull great. Best MTs I've ever run on. But there is not an off road tire out there that will stay quiet, ride good and last very long if tires and truck are not maintained.

The Duratrac's are pretty quiet for an aggressive tread.

THANKS to everyone who made a recommendation. I'll miss the aggressive look, but I will not miss the noise. By the way, I have my tires/wheels rotated and balanced every six months and I also have the front end alignment done every six months. But the tires still seem to be getting noisier and noisier.

My experience after 26 years of driving 4WD with any large M/T or A/T tires is that almost ALMOST all start out quiet. Even all the BFG M/Ts I have had started out "quiet" then just got noisier and noisier. A/Ts do exactly the same.

I agree it's annoying but at the same time the truck can use only so much of its capabilities without those types of tires

Good Luck.

I had 35/15.5/15 Swamper SX's years ago & loved the hum they gave off. But alas......they only last about 20K miles so I went a different route this time.

Yeah I like the sound and look of an aggressive tire. I like when driving down the road and they hear you coming so watch out lol my swampers saved my truck from some serious damage before I got my sliders too a lady in a 2wd tacoma about half truck length ahead of me turned into my lane all I saw was she got real close then all I heard was lugs beating on her door and fender her mirror just pushed in my fender if it wasn't for the 16x10 and 31x12.5 swamper she would have did some damage

If you don't have or have not run Michelin M/S2's on your tacoma, you don't know what you are missing. 10,000 miles on mine so far and won't buy anything else. Even tread wear and super quiet with lots of traction. Granted they don't have that "I'm going to climb Mt. Everest look", but I'm extremely happy with them. For those who say they just bought mud tires and they are quiet, give it a few thousand miles.

Thank you SO MUCH for the help. What is the real/actual size difference between the 305/70/17 tires I have on my truck right now compared to the 285/70/17, which I believe is the largest Michelin LTX MS2 tire they make in the 17"? Will it look a lot smaller? Is there some other 17" Michelin LTX MS2 tire that is available that would work? I'm not seeing any. The guy at the TireRack said the 285/70R17 is .2" taller and 3/4" narrower. Does that sound right? Thanks.

I know they will not have the aggressive look, but right now, I think I'm ready for some peace and quiet. I would appreciate any advice you guys can give me. Thanks.

sorry to go off topic but how do u like the lift?
