Tires noise reduction?
 
Hello,
I am about to buy a 2012 JKU Sahara.
It comes, according to the spec sheet, with P255/70R18 OWL On/Off-Road Tires, not sure what brand that would be though. As I am, sadly enough :banghead: , going to drive primarily on paved roads, I was wondering if anybody has any experience with the stock tire noise and if there is a better option out there (that will fit the stock 18 inch wheels)?
Cheers.

Those are pretty quiet tires, nothing to worry about.

Thanks 3JKs1H1.

Stock Sahara tires are primarily street tires.

I hear that pitbull rock tires are quite. So are Super Swampers

^This. They are Bridgestone Duelers. Calling them off road tires would be quite a stretch.

My buddy changes his Duelers on his Sahara to BFG rugged trail A/Ts and loves em. They're a little more aggressive tire than the Dueler, but quiet on the road.

Get some boggers, according to a scientific study only dogs can hear them

Duelers ARE quiet. And they served my trips across the winter ice/snow pack Santiam Pass numerous times without issue.

They do fail in mud/goo/and general muck.

My Kelly TRS are also quiet, unless I pick up some driveway rock, which then clickety clickclick.

A neighbor has something on his little SUV econobox you can hear coming a mile away....although his rig is always extremely muddy and has evidence of some kind of 4wheeling, and he usually has a smile.

Gravel road tires, maybe. No more.
