What are the quietest tyres available for a 195/65R15 size? The last time I checked the Michelin Premacy LC is the quietest. Is there an even quieter tyre than this one whereby road noise is greatly suppressed?

It doesn't matter if performance on wet is slightly compromised. The most important is the tyres are made from a good and soft rubber compound so as noise from the roads will barely be heard in the cabin. A serene and quiet cabin is preferred over a spirited drive capability with super road grip.

Thanks.

Try Bridgestone GR-90 and Yokohama latest Advan dB....... smile_wink.gif

Most Japanese Tyres or Made In Japan tyres would do this job.
IMHO...avoid Michelin tyres....
Overrated, overpriced, overbranded for a Made in Thailand tyres.
Not worthy.

If they insist on Michelin then cannot help. If they pay but can buy other brands, you still have a choice to choose, right? smile_tongue.gif

Toyo comfort quiet tyre is the C-1S. Maybe depends on size. Teo plus could be for smaller sizes..... smile_tongue.gif

Can be too, as the thread pattern cuts are very fine, but I don't think they did advertise as quiet, unlike PLC, C-1S, GR-90 and the new Yoko Advan dB
