1999 996 Road noise and P Zero tires

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Year: 1999; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 18,000;

I am following up on the road noise question presented several months ago. I just sold my 1995 993 with Michelin MX3 tires that did not have near the road noise as my replacement 996 with Pirelli P Zeros. Both cars are cabriolets and are tight. Is this "new noise" car related? or tire related? Is it realistic to expect a noticeable difference in road noise attributable to different tire manufacturers? The road noise is a speed accentuated roar, not related to the sport exhaust system.
