My MTR/K's are too quiet

Anyone share a similar experience with these or others?

Bought a new set in the 35" flavor and there too quiet. I've heard Honda civics with more tire hum. I'm running 14 psi to get good wear. You would think at 14 psi they'd have a good hum. But I got nothing. Maybe the Yjs just loud enough to drown Em out.

14 psi is kind of low on the road. They will get louder as they age. I have about 18K on ours, they are much louder now then when new. They bite better though now on rock then when new, as most tires with a bit of wear.

14 psi? Is this a joke?

Mine are anything but quiet.

OlllllllO

When you say they're anything but quiet is that an exaggeration? Or do you really have better experience with other tires? If so, which ones?

Use them then...

Mine are loud (albeit they do have some chunking from rock-use)

It means they aren't a quiet tire, such as a street tire on a Civic. On my Jeep alone I've ran 1 set of KM1's, 1 set of KM2's and 2 sets of MTR/K's. The MTR's aren't quiet. They aren't PBR loud but they most certainly aren't street tire quiet. I question the OP's hearing abilities if he insists that's the case.

OlllllllO

Oh that's what you were saying. I don't even care what a street tire on a Civic would sound like. If I wanted a quiet driving experience ( which, admittedly, sometimes would be nice) I would buy a car with those characteristics. I was just wondering if you had a quieter tire in mind that WOULD work on a Jeep. But I misunderstood what you were trying to say in your post.

Whoa! Let's settle down a little. Mine are quiet. But are still brand new. Will be chucked up soon enough. I run 14 psi on a light weight YJ. Ran the chalk test and still have a little left over on the outer lugs. Maybe I got some kind of super MTR

My hearing is fine. Tires are quiet. Now my buddies mud grappelers on the other hand are hummtastic.

The chalk test is only useful to an extent. I have run 35" and 37" MTR/K's on a lightweight TJ. I ran the 35's at 24 psi in the rear and 26 psi up front. 14 is way too low, despite what the chalk test tells you. As for noise, no worries. After a few thousand miles and a rotation or two, they'll pick up.

Not being an ***. But how's it only good to an extent? Don't you want to get even wear?

Good to hear on the noise picking up some.

Ur an idiot. Let the pros handle this one. Despite what we think we're still pretty green in the wheeling world.
