Some of the quietest riding tires are the Michelin Energy Saver A/S, Hankook Optimo H727 and Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring, according to Tire Rack. In most cases, the quieter the tire is, the less traction control and hydroplaning resistance the tire has.
The Michelin Energy Saver A/S is the highest rated tire when considering sound, and it is also good for fuel economy. The Hankook Optimo H727 offers a comfortable ride and all-season traction, even in light snow. The Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring tire has good traction in all seasons, and it features an extra layer of rubber, something not found in most other tires, which gives it a more comfortable riding quality.
