Loud Michelin tires
 
I haven't seen this addressed here so I'd like to know if anyone changed from Michelin to another brand and noticed a difference in road noise. Our Vegas is really loud when driving on a concrete highway, not so much on asphalt. Thanks in advance for any help.

Most tires are louder on concrete than asphalt. Concrete is harder and scuffs the rubber more, thus the whine.

Thanks, I realize that. I'm just wondering if any brand are quieter than Michelins.

Michelinís certainly last the longest. I put 36,000 miles on my 2014 Vegas in three years over a lot of back dirt roads in western Canada and Alaska and thousands of miles of turnpike driving to get there from Florida and Thry were still good when I traded it in. They are wearing just as well on my Axis at over 20k miles.
