    Hi. I have a 3” Procomp lift, 17x9 RBP 93R wheels with a 4.5” backspace, and 305/65/17 Procomp Xtreme AT tires. I absolutely love the setup, but the tires are just too noisy. I can't carry on a conversation inside the truck while I'm driving down the road. Does anyone know of a set of QUIET tires that would be about as large? 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.

    For the aggressive look and quiet ride together, go purchase a set of Toyo M/T. I just put a set of 33x12.50x18 on a 18x10 rim with 7" of lift and I swear that there is NO noise coming off of these tires. All non believers should come take a ride in my truck. Good luck and Aloha! :)

    Hankook Dynapro ATM was an excellent all terrain tire that was nicely quiet.
    I now have Cooper made Destiny Dakota ATs and they are quiet.
    I have also had Cooper Discoverer ATRs and Toyo Open Country ATs, both good quiet tires.
    The NOISY tires I had were Cooper Discoverer STTs !!!

    LTX MS/2. My Winter LTX have that same tread pattern, and they're quieter than the stock Dunflops.

    General Grabber AT2. Aggressive tread and very quiet. Not real expensive either.
