Quiet tyres for Golf

Recommended Posts

Hi just wondering if any Golf owners have achieved noticeable reductions in road noise by changing tyres.  My recent purchase came with Gt radial FE2 tyres which are OK but the road noise can be excessive on some surfaces, but it still better than the BMW active tourer.  I know that the EU tyre ratings for noise don't necessarily relate to internal noise levels.

Thanks. I think you can only go on recommendations.  It's very difficult some people complain that Michelin Primacy tyres are noisy and the external noise ratings don't necessarily correspond with the internal noise experienced by the driver.  There are some new Falken tyres rated at 67db but that would be a gamble.  What tyre brands are used on brand new Golfs with 16 inch wheels?
