replacing nankang mudstar radial mt
i'm about to purchase some new tires (read: should have purchased new tires weeks ago) and am trying to figure out exactly what i'm looking at.
i bought my wrangler with 33in nankang mudstar radial mts, and they seem decent. they were OK in snow and handled a muddy dirt road a few times i took em down one. haven't done any serious offroading, but they seem fine.
one thing i've noticed is the hum on the highway. does anyone know how these things compare to other tires in terms of noise? i partially figured it was just the jeep that's loud, but now realize it may be the tires.
the reason i ask is i'm looking at duratracs, and every 1/5 reviews or so says they're a little loud. just trying to figure if i'm going to have a louder tire (which i really don't want since i do a fair amount of highway driving). if that seems to be the case, i'll probably go with destination ats or something like that. i'd prefer the mt/duratrac look, but would love a noise reduction if possible (and possibly better gas mileage).
