The quietest tire brands on the market come from Goodyear and Michelin, according to Tire Rack. Specific passenger car tire models are the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred, Michelin Defender and Michelin Primacy MXV4.

The Goodyear Assurance ComforTred is an all-season tire for passenger vehicles and has high ratings when considering noise. Though very quiet, this tire is only available in a few sizes. Alternatively, the Michelin Defender is a consumer favorite thanks to its quiet and smooth ride. This tire also has all-season traction, even in light snow.

For those who have a need for speed, the Michelin Primacy MXV4 is another option that brings good control, low noise output and long treadlife.
