Getting ready to replace the OEM Continental 4x4 tires on my 08 CR-V. They are the noisiest tires I have ever owned. Does anyone know which brand is the quietest. Any info would be appreciated.

The SN828 is a good option. Another excellent model to look into is the Assurance FuelMax by Goodyear.
This man knows his stuff (obviously). My Parents have the FuelMax tires on their 07 and it is quieter than the Continentals were not to mention they actually do work as advertised.

edit: I have a G2 but I have G3 size wheels on it and I run Kuhmo Solus KH16s. They are pretty quiet too and simply amazing in the rain as well as dry. I was hauling up the Parkway at 80mph the other night in a pretty good rain and not even a hint of hydroplaning.

Thank you for the kind words :cool:

Every time I see your screen name BTW, I can't get the Scotty Doesn't Know song out of my head :D

Its not the tire, as much as it is the car itself. If the sound bugs you that much, find a shop to spray on undercoating/sound deadner. It will make a big difference vs trying to find a quiet tire.

Why do I know this? Years back, my dealer allowed me to drive with 2 other complete tire sets after Honda swapped the Bridgestones for BFG's and I still wasnt happy. The dealer proved I could hardly tell the difference between different tires on the CR-V.

Nothing changed until we had Zeibart spray sound deadner underneath.

I can tell a night and day difference between my winter and summer tires. My Winterforce are awesome in the snow and on ice, but they're LOUD on dry pavement. I picked up some of those Falken SN828's at Discount this spring when I went to put my summer tires back on the V and found that two of them had nails in them - they instantly went flat.

My old summer tires (don't remember what they were) were on the V when I got it and were also really loud. I asked my friend Steve, who has a 1G CRV like mine, if his was loud - assuming that the CRVs were just loud inside. He said it wasn't, so I rode in his to check the difference in sound and it was night and day.

When I replaced my tires with the 828's this spring, mine's easily as quiet as his now and I love it. I'm not looking forward to going back to the Winterforce in a month or so when it starts snowing again. :(

Doing something about the sound on my 2002 CR-V is second on my to-do list.

First is getting someone in the Dallas/FortWorth area to install OEM fog lights.

Funny you should have that experience. I have a 2010 CRV with OEM Continentals, and these are the quietest tires in my 52 years of driving. The Highway Department just resurfaced the main road in front of my house that goes 13 miles to town. When my car hits the new road, all you hear is shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. But even on the worst roads they are quiet. :cool:

I am curious how long your OEM tires lasted. My 08 CRV 4 wheel drive came with Bridgestone Duelers and despite rotation every five K miles and gentle driving, they failed before 20,000 miles. I replaced with Good Year Frontera Triple Tred and after about 4 K miles have been pleased. They seem quieter than the OEM and definitely have more noticable tred. The OEM came with no tread wear warranty but these have, a 60k warranty. I seem to be getting as good a mileage with these as the OEM. I do transfer over to dedicated winter tires but perhaps it would be unnecessary with what looks like an impressive thred. I hope this helps.

My 2004 was very noisy until I replaced the tires with Kelly Navigator Touring Gold 96T tires. I can't believe the difference. Just completed a 1000 mile round trip on the freeway and I was able to listen to the radio at its lowest setting. I believe the tread pattern makes a difference. The grooves do not look like what you find on cheap tires. They have a complex cut. Think helical gears versus ordinary simple gears.

Well this weekend I found that the SA4 All Season tires I had on my 2002 CRV finally passed the wear barrier, so I decided to get new tires this weekend. I had to balance cost (170,000 mile car, didn't want to spend a lot), sound and longitivity. I settled on Goodyear Viva 2 is rated at 60,000 miles and costs $60.50 (Walmart is running a special). I got the lifetime balancing, and road hazard. Total paid for 4 tires, installed and balanced, was $362.

The tires are inflated to the Honda recommended 26 psi, cold. I went out for a 20 mile spin to see how they handle and how they sound. Much quieter than the SA4 All Season tires.

PS, I wanted to go to DiscountTires but they were closed when I called. Walmart is open until 8PM on Saturdays, so they got my business (my apologies to the site sponsor).

Thanks,
Don

For road noise the first thing to do is get the wheels aligned.

Honda's alignment spec for production is so broad it can make terrible tire noise, especially on new concrete; and, especially the rear.

My 2010 with duelers is fine since the rear alignment was corrected.
