    Quiet Tires

    Stock tires that came with my ST are in need of replacement.
    Im looking at either Nitto Motivos or the ones my local tire dealer recommended which are BF Goodrich G-Force Comp 2 a/s.
    I daily my ST on the highway so an quiet all season tire since I do see both rain and sun here in central California would be best. Any recommendations
    as to something else or information on the 2 current options?

    I have continental extreme contact dws on my car. They are noisy for the first 500 miles, but after they break in they are silent. Love these tires, way more comfortable than the stock eagles, just as grippy in dry, 10 times grippier in wet, haven't been able to test in snow (Cali) but they are awesome tires, they hug the road and deliver decent comfort and a quiet ride. Highly recommend them.

    What part of Central Cali? I assume you mean the SLO area? Anyways, most reputable A/S tires are going to be less noisy from the start, but I run Yokohama ADVAN Sport A/S tires on my ST. They're super quite, grip well, and aren't overly expensive (each person has different budgets though). I think I paid around $130 per tire, and they've been great thus far.

    If you're not going to see frost/ice/snow, then I highly recommend Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. They wear well (30k mile warranty), have excellent traction in the cold & rain, and have more traction in the dry than any all-season will. Technically they are a summer tire, but the rubber doesn't become brittle until 25F whereas most summer tires are done by 40F. These are the tire of choice here in Rain Central, in the Pacific Northwest.

    +1 to Michelin's Pilot Sport 4S

    My opinion is to get the best possible tire for the temperature. Front wheel drive needs the extra grip.
    These will increase performance AND safety (harder braking without slip)

    I love them lol I've had them on other vehicles as well, Yokohama is my go to for tires, always had great results & luck from them. What'd you end up going with instead?

    As mentioned, there are a lot of solid tire options to choose from and ultimately the right tire model for you will depend on the conditions in which you drive and the performance attributes you need the tires to deliver.

    The BFG Comp 2s are LOUD.

    The all season pirelli p-zeros that came as an option on the ST are quiet and pretty cheap.
