2006 911 Tire Noise

Wheels and Tires

Vehicle Information: Model: 997; Year: 2006; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 350;

Joel,I am picking on you as you seem to have the most knowledge of our Porsches and give excellent and timely answers. I sold my 993 last November, with 108,000 very trouble free miles. Hopefully the current owner is continuing to enjoy the car. My 997 was delivered to me last week with a total of 7 miles on it. It is equipped with Continental ContiSport Contact 2 tires. The mileage is now 350, with 200 or so of that being highway milage. Most of those miles were on highways that were less than perfect as well as many miles on new asphalt paving that has been left with a rough non skid surface. These tires are very noisy. More so than worn out Pirellis on my 993. Any suggestions on possible alternate tires that would provide the performance without the noise or at least with noise that would be tolerable?
