The sound of a truck is something I don't want. I know it is actually common for 17's to be noisy, but keeping the noise to a limit is highly desirable. I don't know anybody with tires this size so it makes it kind of hard to get a first hand experience with them. Maybe spending a few extra dollars on a tire will guarantee a quieter ride, but then again maybe not! Thanks for your input!
1992 525I (Rim and Tire uprade in progress)
: I haven't really tested it to limit conditions as i have with my other tyres.
: but has been ok compared to others. only problem was that it was noisy. sounded almost like a truck.

: my 2 cents
: izzy

: : I'm looking to buy some 17" tires and am considering the A520's from Yokohama. If not, I may buy the Avis Sport for some few extra dollars. Thanks!
