What about quiet tires?

I had the Firestone LE2's on my truck when I bought it 3 years ago, just replaced them this winter with some Nitto N421q's because of low tread depth. I had no issues with mine at all until they got low on tread but that would happen with any tire. They even held up pretty good with a few burnouts before I swapped them.

Yeah it's a mix of a car and truck tire from the looks, so they are pretty quiet on the roads. In 2WD they had decent traction depending on the surface and your right foot but in 4AUTO they never skipped a beat.

 

The Nitto tires I replacement mine with are the same way and I am totally fine with them.

Will guys ended up buying the Firestone LE3, got one size up 275/65R18 - they don't look too special but they are nice 

it is hard to tell they are actually a bit bigger.

Glad you like them!  There is a lot to be said for a quiet tire that grips well.  If all I ever had to deal with was rain and snow, I would have Highway Tires on all four corners all year long, but unfortunately I have to deal with a lot of mud so I cant really go that route, but super jealous of those who can :).

I venture out every now and then. But mostly I commute 65miles/day

Man I can't thank you enough for the recommendation. It was slick this morning on I94  and 694. So many cars were squirming I had 0 issues. And Went and visited my folks out west and it was a white out, so many cars in the ditch. It was like nothing for me. I just hope they stay the same for 3 more winters
