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...

Tow goodies
Some go fast parts
Big TV to keep the kids quiet
Upgraded stereo to keep the driver happy

It tows my race car like its not even there

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

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

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?
