    Hello,

    I have an 05 double cab Sport 4x4. All stock. I grabbed some FJ wheels with decent tires...but a little dry rotted and only 30% thread left.
    I am thinking I should swap the tires on the FJ's before I put them on...

    What is the quietest tires out there? I know it is a truck, but I do alot of highway and want it to feel like a car :p That is why i went with sport vs off-road :cool:

    Someone local is selling these, all for $150 and I am tempted:
    4 Dunlop GrangTrek AT20 tires for sale that only have 4500 miles on them. These are stock for the 2011 Tacoma. Size - 265/65/R17

    Stay away from mud terrain type tires... I had Cooper Discoverer STTs and they were way too loud... and I know they are not the worse.

    I did like the Cooper Discoverer ATR and Toyo Open Country AT... both great 'truck' tires, but quiet on the road!

    The quietest tire that I know of is the Michelin LTX M/S2. Smoothest, longest lasting tire on the road.

    Couldn't agree more. These tires are the best thing I've ever owned.

    Stay away from the Dunlops, from what I've read on here.

    My Sport came stock with the Bridgestone Dueler H/T. I gotta say, they were great tires. I took them off at 40k and they probably had 20k left. Were actually very quiet on the highway and reasonably priced. I went to an A/T tire, but at times wish I had stuck with the Dueler H/T.

    +1, I've seen these tires last 70k miles. Next best tire I've seen is the Cooper Zeon LTZ. That was my last tire and I was amazed at how quiet they were and how long they lasted.

    Michelin XLT's are the way to go.. Not only are they quiet, but I've put them through hell and they're still in good shape after a ton of miles, many of them on bad roads or even no road at all. But definitely, when you get on the highway they're extremely quiet and smooth riding. Great fuel economy too.

    Can't say enough about these tires.
