It is, but I usually have my windows down when I drive. The only time I hear my tires at all, is when the radio is off and my windows are down. Well on the highway they're a little louder than around town, but again as long as I have my radio on you can't hear them
Thats cause you bump black and yellow so loud

That hasnt been the case for me. Not that I am overly concerned about fuel mileage but it is nice to get the best you can. Now if a nice set of mud tires came up for sale I certainly wouldnt pass them up.

Mines not the noise its just the ride at times and wobble at speeds.

I have 2 that are damn near perfect, only like 1 ounce of weight to balance, then the other 2 are like 5 and ones super bad at 8 ounches and when its up front it just kills me. Add that to the ranger suspension not being that beefy to soak it all up, and the interior rattles you get from it, its enough to sell the truck right then, especially when now I need more room. Priorities are taking over the toys for now.

that's how I've always been. If I find a decent set with good life left for a good price I'm down. I've been looking daily for a set on the 250, nothing crazy I just hate street tires in overstock sizes. I feel like well I have a beefy aggresive tire size, but no tread.

I'm a CL tire buyer for life now, Never will I buy new after spending like 800 on my 265 BFGs 6 years ago. I just ***** out 3/4-half tread tires for a year or two and move on to the next
