i have the toyo's and never really noticed any "noise." then again,
i listen to the radio most of the time and i must say that the road
noise is louder than the radio.

I think Michelin discontinued them all together and I don't think it worth ordering them from the states due to the shipping charges.

I think the Latitudes are the replacement model. Those are the ones I'm getting. Apparently they have a higher speed rating. The tread pattern is not as attractive but still that's something I can live with.

I have the toyo's and have been very happy with them so far but I also only have less than 3k miles on them. I have not had a chance to drive a lot with them with the windows down. Still too cold in Wis. for that. Mid 20's for the high today but it is sunny.

I couldn't get the Diamaris and the Latitudes are ugly and all season with the same speed rating so I splurged and bought the PZero ROSSOs. Hope this was the right choice.

Anyone think the Diamaris are worth the extra $$?? It would be nice to save a few dollars to put toward other mod's.
Have you looked at the Yokohama Advans?

I did,

The way my source explained it to me is that the v type groove in the tread design is what makes a tire more or less noisy.

I just checked tire rack and there doesn't seem to be Toyo's in stock.
The Diamaris are still there and the Yoko Advans.

What's peoples opinions on the Advans? I just picked up a set of OEM 20's and I haven't seen much feedback on it.
Can't be louder than driving on snow tires right now.
