Hey guys,

 

With the time we have had our Energi's and the other plugins, electric cars out there, is there a good QUIET tire to replace the ones I have..not now, but when the time comes. I like to eliminate as much road noise as I can.

 

I hear a big difference between concrete and black top freeways. The black top freeways are quieter but more of the upgraded and new freeways are concrete.

 

Thanks,

 

P.S> With the verbiage of the 2016 Energis coming out with thicker windows to cut down noise, I may also replace mine in the future if that holds true. Cheaper then a new car!  But that is another story.

These tires are Energy Saving design, known as LRR tires. Low Rolling Resistance.

If you get the wrong tires, you'll lose MPG's. If you want to reduce noise, add sound

deadening mat to the floor pans, firewall and doors.

That is the refreshed "2015" European Cmax.  It is likely we already have that feature.

Why would you run an XL load range tire ? And why would you run a V rated tire ?

 

V rated tires are a 149 MPH sustained speed tire. I doubt the C-Max will ever see more than 125 mph.

IMO, you need nothing more than an S or T rated tire. T is a more common tire and is good

for 118 MPH. I really doubt you need an XL tire either. These ratings will add weight and

that kills MPG's.

Try to check out Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Run Flat. They are LRR tires but they are bit heavier than the oem tires.
