Quiet tyres

Does anyone have any recommendations for quiet tyres for my 2006 1.2 Panda Elegenza?
Thanks

Re: Quiet tyres

I have Michelin Energy tyres on my car. They're not bad as all noise wise, have gone road holding and really are good wearing.

Re: Quiet tyres

According to the national tyres website Goodyear duragrip have the lowest noise for your car out of the listed tyres.

Hope this helps.

Re: Quiet tyres

I second the Goodyear Duragrip.
My little puddle-jumper was bad on road roar with standard wheels/tyres, especially on roads surfaced with granite chippings (Wales, Scotland - some authorities have a thing about granite!).

So I bought a set of 14" wheels and fitted Duragrip 175/65R x 14's. Big difference in road roar, and an improvement in comfort also.
These are standard on many 500's, so you may be able to pick up a set cheap, as some 500 owners buy a new car and immediately change to alloys, selling off the unused wheels. Saw a set of four on EBay recently for 40 starting price, with no takers.

Sweetsixteen.

Re: Quiet tyres

Hi, have fitted Goodyear efficient grip 165/70's, so slightly higher profile, better ride and much quieter, recommended.
Cheers JB
