the cheaper tires all seem to get noisier as they wear. I got a great deal on a set of Uniroyal Touring Tiger Paws for the 9-5 wagon a few years back. Great ride, decent handling, awesome in the wet. But from 30K miles on it sounded like all the wheel bearings were going bad. I pulled them off before they were at the wear bars and went for some Michelin Primacy MXV4s from Tire Rack with a $70 rebate and local installation. Very nice tire, should get more miles out of it, so cost will even out.
Am about to get new tires for my 9K and will probably do a Grand Touring tire this time instead of an ultra high performance all season. And will snag the rebate, too. Am looking at the Bridgestone Serenity, which has been a good tire on daughter's 9-3.
