I’d say the Nitto tires I currently have on my Mustang are the noisiest dry tires I’ve even owned. The are labeled “extreme performance summer” tires. That means they stick like glue to a road or racetrack - and they do - which is why I bought them. They are wearing out pretty darn fast but track days will do that. Compromises.
My wife’s Saab didn’t like the OEM Michelins either, @ok4450. They got very noisy at the rear as they got closer to a rotation. Once rotated to the front, they were OK for a while. As they aged, they got noisy faster.
The noisiest I’ve ever encountered were Generals, I believe, that were OEM on my Dad’s 81 Buick X-car. With 98,000 miles, 10 years old and NEVER rotated from the rear axle. He just kept buying new front tires every 35K or so… You couldn’t hold a conversation in the car at 35 mph they were so loud. It wasn’t the brand so much as the fact they were hard as rocks being 10 years old.
I know you excluded winter tires but - Firestone Winterforce, just awful for noise, from day 1, but pretty good traction, Michelin Alpins, quiet and grippy as heck!
