I just purchased a used 98 Mazda Millenia. It has Uniroyal Tiger Paws GTV4's...there is a lot of road noise with these tires. Can anyone suggest a quieter tire?

Thanks

Pirelli P400 Touring
Michelin X-One
Michelin Symmetry
Dunlop D65T Touring Elite
Yokohoma Avid Touring

All long lasting quiet touring tires.
Michelin is most expensive out of the bunch. Pirelli is probably a best buy out of the bunch.

quiet tires do come from tires with a smooth non-aggressive tread design usually found in lower speed rated touring tires. The have a low rolling resistance, low friction rubber that meets the road(usually made out of a harder rubber mixture than high speed tires and off road tires where traction is more of a concern).

I recently got Michelin X-Ones for our Camry. The cornering is now almost as smooth as on our AWD Subaru! They are VERY quiet and smooth, as well--the quality of ride is much better than the Michelins we had (not x-one) and they are rated for 80,000 miles, though I don't expect it on the gravel hills of rural western North Carolina.
