    My buddy has a 2009 TRD Sport, four door taco. He needs tires and he does not like any outdoor/road noise from tires. What is the best quiet tire you suggest he gets? He has stock size tires, he does not care if they look aggressive or not. He is willing to spend top dollar for the most quiet tires. He goes to vegas alot from cali and just wants quiet tires. Does not go off road. Boring type of guy....LOL!

    Suggestions?

    Thanks.

    Buy a Civic? I Kid, I Kid. My BFG Radial Long Trail TA load range C tires are quiet, and I get 45K out of them easy, not too heavy, many highway miles, moderate off road abilities.

    Put these on the wifes 4Runner. I don't think they are all that quiet. Not loud like some all terrain or mud terrain tires but someone looking for a super quiet ride will not be satisfied with these. I would probably have him look in the Michelin family.

    Yep, some highway specific Michelin wiull be hard to beat. There are planty similar to those too, any road tire will be quiet.

    There is no such thing as a quiet mudder.

    I ran them on my truck when I first got it. Only way they made noise was when I mashed the skinny pedal and made them squeal.
