The reason being that my current Contis are extremely noisy (75 dB on the label), while the Dunlops seem to be the quietest tires out there (65 - 68 dB only).

My question to is this: before you replaced your Dunlops, did you notice how noisy the really are? TIA,

I'm bumping this thread up in hope someone who actually drove the F10 on both the above tire models could share his observations on how they compare noise-wise...

I'm a tire noise sucker, but as has been said I don't blindly believe the noise ratings on labels. And unfortunately, I have no opportunity to test drive a car on the Dunlops, so the only thing I know is that my Contis are very, very noisy

Thanks

Piotr
