    Turn the radio up and it won't matter :headbang:

    But seriously, I'm running Duratracs now, and I hear more wind noise than tire noise. Not loud at all. I rode in my uncle's truck with Nittos and they were substantially louder.

    Apples to organges. Duratracs are an all-terrain tire, the others are mud-terrains. You'd expect the duratracs to be quieter.

    Everyone says the Duratrac's are quiet, but I still hear mine. I guess I don't listen to the radio loud enough...

    The Duratrac's are great, noisy or not!
