Do you know anything about the Hankook Ventus ST's? I'm certainly no tire expert just don't think spending 2K on a new set makes sense for performance levels that I will never come close to. And do the Toyo's come in the stock size?

Re: Looking for Quiet Replacement Tires

My take on this based on driving with both...

Nitrogen filled tires are somewhat pointless from almost every "expert" I have spoken to. They produce a stiffer, harder ride and there is barely any difference in tire life etc. Ask any tire shop and you'll find many don't deal with Nitrogen. It's something auto manufactures do to make us think it's better so they can charge us more. it's more of a catch phrase than anything, if we drove Ferrari's - different story.

The only area they are better, the sidewalls are stiffer so if you're tracking, then yes, Nitro for sure.

For the other 99% of us though - they make a loud, harsh ride.

I flipped mine to air filled right away, got rid of the Pirellis and went with BF Goodrich g-Force KDW's and I couldn't be happier.

My Tires

Cheaper, better traction and quieter. All win.

I have the Toyo Proxy ST2 as well and I couldn't be happier.

I originally bought them to replace the tires on my 12 and ended up getting a 14 shortly after and had the dealer take the new tires off my 14 and take the Toyos off the 12.

When I was shopping for a tire I was t concerned with price and I have to tell you these things are awesome. Great in the snow, high speed rating, no road noise, and handle very well.

I would take a serious look at this tire. Just my .02 Good luck.

Re: Looking for Quiet Replacement Tires

I had the Paradas mounted and balanced yesterday and instantly out of the shop the car:

-Rides quieter
-Smoother
-No longer has vibration in the steering wheel about 50 mph
-No longer pulses in the peddles when i let off the gas

A few things to consider, these yokahamas are brand new while the stock pirellis i took off were down to the wear bars. That being sad, as far as selecting a new tire for your Jeep, I would highly recommend choosing NON runflat tires. The ride is much quieter and smoother (not to mention they cost 30% of what OEM replacements cost, 700 vs over 2000). I hope my experience has been helpful.
