Its funny i was driving to see my girlfriend today and i had the windows down while listen to "mud diggers" by colt ford (if u havent heard u must check it out its funny) and one of the lines is "our tires stay roarin while we ride thru the town" and i turned down my radio and was kinda upset when i noticed the tires i have on dont make much noise. but then it occured to me that on my 4 hour daily drive thats most likely a good thing

I concur on this most excellent example of musical composition.

I have that song on one of the CDs in my truck, sounds great through the subs. But I have the same feeling when that line comes on, I wished my tires roared more but with the highway driving I do I would just be spending way too much money if I ran M/Ts.

I don't know if its the same in tires measured in inches, but the 235/85R16, a narrower 32 in metric, is generally only found in a E load rating, therefore upping the price significantly. my .02
