Quiet AT's

Is there such a thing as quiet AT tires?

I currently have BFG AT's and need to replace them and wanted to know if there is something even quieter. I would like to buy the quietest AT possible as I spend 99% of my time on the freeway in California. I only am in the snow a few times a year.

I do tow frequently, so E rated would be great as well.

I could run with something like a BFG Rugged Trail...

I would go with the TOYO AT's they ride very well, quiet, and good tread wear.

BFG AT's are the quietest AT's I've used. Never had the TOYO's, , I've heard good things about them also though.

Stay with the BFG AT's. They are by far the quietest from all the people I talked to before I bought mine. Just make sure you rotate 'em often. The wear is great for me too...even with 20 1/4 passes on 'em and a few burn outs. I installed 'em in Oct of 06....great tires!!!

I also have the BFG's and I don't even think I can hear them at all. Maybe they get a little noisy as they wear? Are they cupping because they need to be rotated maybe?
