Re: Tyre Noise Regulations

For road tyres maybe, but for M/Ts or A/Ts that is ridiculous. There has to be a compromise in performance. I wonder when the new noise regulations for sirens on emergency vehicles comes into use. 85dB isn't it?

Re: Tyre Noise Regulations

Tyre noise regulations, what next?

I had not heard about this but seeing as it's a European regulation, it won't be long before they start messing with it over here too. You would think the EU has bigger issues with the economic crisis, international crime, ... etc. No we need laws on tyre noise, yep.

Re: Tyre Noise Regulations

Here you go

BF Goodrich Tyres / SUV 4x4 / BF Goodrich ATKO All Terrain TA BF Goodrich AT KO - 255/70 R16 LT 115S RWL TL
(Fuel Eff.: F Wet Grip: C NoiseClass: 3 Noise: 77dB)

BF Goodrich Tyres / SUV 4x4 / BF Goodrich MTKM2 Mud Terrain TA BF Goodrich MT KM2 - 255/70 R16 LT 115Q RWL TL
(Fuel Eff.: G Wet Grip: C NoiseClass: 3 Noise: 76dB)

Also noticed the wet rating on both is a 'C' which has been improved from the previous 'E' rating of a year ago

Looking closer at the ratings the BFG's equal the ratings of the majority of all the road pattern tyres for wet and noise

Load of ballcocks IMO
