Suggest me a quiet 225/40/18 please.....

I must be getting old, or my drive to work is getting boring.

I am looking for a all-season tire that give me a decent ride comfort, good traction in rain, and low noise; if a summer tire can do that, i will be happier


Tirerack guys, do you guys have a road noise shoot out or some sort of test that compare cabin noise for various tires?

Continental ExtremeContact DWS. They're one of the best all-season tires you can buy. They're quiet, have a relatively soft sidewall, and offer good performance for an all-season.

thanks both of you!

I have use all generation of Falken's all season, 502, 512, and 912, they are all good for the first couple years, (i swap winter tire for 5 months) but after that, they are loud and do'nt drive as good anymore.

I will definitely give that Conti a good look!

open for other brand name suggestion as well!

+1 for the DWS. And if you want a RFT, the Bridgestone RE960 A/S RFT has been getting good reviews.
