Quietest Tires for 2017 Z71 LTZ Midnight?

Recommended Posts

I have stock 18 inch Duratracs with 17,500 miles on them.   Love the look on my Midnight Z71, but I find that I am rarely off road in anything more than some light mud on level road.  I am thinking that a good rain and snow tire that is quieter than the Duratracs might be a good choice, although I hate to completely give up the 'LOOK' of the Duratracs.   Quietest tires you've found in 18 inch?   Or just stick with the Duratracs?

Most if not all highway tires out there will be significantly quieter.

This is the only time I would actually recommend the SRAs. Want to trade ? Haha

Any run of the mill AT tire will give you the look you want plus be quieter.  Have a look at something like a Cooper AT3, nitto terra grapplers, etc.  I have run both on previous trucks and they give that off road look, decent traction, and tame on the paved roads.  They will have more road noise than the SRA's but not too bad.

I have the duratracs on my 2017 midnight also. The noise doesn't bother me at all and I do like the looks. Plus they've been great through the New England winter. I have 12,500 miles on them, but when the time comes to replace them, I will most likely get duratracs again.

Hate my AT/3's. Noisy as hell. Going away soon.

Michelin LTX or surprisingly their AT2 are both quiet.

Michelin has never let me down and Costco tire centers treat me well.  Tire "looks" are very subjective.  Where some will see gnarly, macho tires,  others will see the same tires as noisy, fast wearing  and rough riding.  I never miss a day of driving and experience all types of weather/ road conditions on Canada's west coast.

Toyo AT2's nice and quiet and pretty aggressive looking for an AT. Had them on my truck when it was just leveled and they were great.

You want a highway tire. As mentioned above, all H/T tires will be quieter than your current A/T tire. I don't have any H/T experience outside the 500 miles on my SRA's, and I wouldn't recommend them to my biggest enemy.

I know they get poor reviews in social media but the Bridgestone H/T Dueler 684 II that came stock on mine are very quite. I have 55K on this set with zero issues. They will exceed their 60K warranty with ease. I've been impressed with how well they work in the wet especially under braking. I have no opinion on them in snow. I avoid the stuff like the plague. Not only choice but a solid one IMHO.

 

I've also use Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus and Continental Cross Contact LX20. There's three winners and the hat trick.
