No, they are very silent, almost Michelin silent. Of course the tyres are still new. I've done only 3000 kms so far on them. Real test is after about 7 or 8k kms. But as of now no complaints.

Edit : These are advan sport V105 and the pattern is different form the erstwhile advan sport.

Check out this link which has a test comparison report

I can confirm that this is indeed the case. The Pilot Sport 4s are only available in 245/40/18. Can't really recommend it if you're going to go wandering off road, so to speak. Perhaps the Continental CSC5 would be worth considering?

Thank you Santosh and Karan. I read the comparison article and also a few more. Looks like Advan V105 is a very balanced tire and almost all the reviews, it is a very close second after CSC5. But CSC5 has many reviews that it wears out faster.

As I already have tried CSC5 RFTs, I am going to try the Advan V105s this time. The dealer said these are easily available and cost around 17K.

There is still some tread left in my RFTs, maybe another 3K to 4K. Once these wear out, I will switch to Advan V105s.

Last time, I did not have any time to make any tire decisions as I accidentally noticed that the rear tires had gone bald in under 20K kilometers. This time, wanted to do all the research and be ready with the decision.

Thank you all once again for all the inputs

Bent alloys. Have you checked for that?

Did get the alloys checked, they are good. Iím guessing it must have something to do with tyre pressure.

The new tyres are wearing evenly so far although I have driven only about 7.5k KMís so far.
