Hi;

I have a 2006 Jetta TDI. It has a lot of road noise. I am looking to change the tires to something quiet and with low rolling resistance, better mileage. I find that tires get noisier the older they get. Does anyone have any recommendations for quiet tires that stay quiet and still perform well? I live in the US.


Thanks for the help.

Generally speaking, harder tires are louder. I've been pretty happy with michelin primacy mxv4. They are quieter on a B5 Passat than the yokohama dbs2 tires I had on a B5 Audi A4 years ago. The db line is made specifically to be quiet though the dbs2 was more of a sporty tire. I don't know how their current db super E spec tire is but you could check out tire rack for some reviews.

I am using the Michelin Primacy MXM4 on my 2010 Jetta TDI, excellent noise, handling, rolling resistance.
