    I am into this poll thing...

    For those that have owned these tires or have real knowledge of them, I would be interested in knowing how much road noise they have at highway speed. I just got a new set of Mickey Thompson ATZs and they have a little more road noise than I like. I have to drive on the interstate a fair amount and I am not sure I can get used to them. They look more like a mud tire than an AT.

    I dont want to get another set of tires only to find they also have too much road noise.

    So for this poll which one would have the least amount of road noise?

    This poll doesn't make sense because the only way for anyone to tell you which is the quietest of those is for them to have owned ALL of those tires at one point.

    People are just going to cast a vote for the tires they own.

    All I can tell you is that right now I have Hankook Dynapros and they are very quiet, but they aren't on your list.

    All you are going to get is people saying "I have the goodyears and they are quiet" or "My BFG's are quiter than my buddy's revo's"

    I had the Toyo's before my duratracs, they were pretty quiet. But they wore out WAY too fast and sucked in the rain.

    Love my goodyear duratracs even though they are a little noisy.

    had a set of BFG AT's on my girlfriend's old xterra..they were a little noisy but less noisy than my duratracs.

    I guess your right but I did say "if you have knowledge" I figure people ride in their buddies trucks and/ or may have owned several... I myself have owned BFGs and Revos... it has been a while on the BFGs though.

    Can't answer your pole, but I can comment on Mich AT LT tires. Very quiet compared to others I've had, like Dunflops, Pirellis, and Wranglers.

    I have Toyo Open Country A/Ts and they are quiet, I can't hear them unless I turn off the radio really listen for them. From the choices you listed my guess for quietest would be the Revo2 just because of the tread pattern.

    x2! From the poles and previous threads I have read about AT tires, I would think (from what you have listed) the Toyo and Revos would be pretty quiet. I just don't know which one but. I've considered the Toyos at one time, but I got some BFG at a good price.

    I had the Toyo Open Country ATs on after the noisy mud terrain Cooper Discoverer STTs were ready to be replaced... The Toyos were great... Also, the Cooper Discoverer ATRs are also good, quiet tires for the Tacoma
