Looking for some help, the time has come for me to buy a new set of tires. But I've been thinking about changing the factory tires to another brand or type. My car came with 19" Goodyear Eagle Touring SCT (Sound Comfort Tech). I was wondering if any of you guys switch to tires without the sound proofing foam strip. Most of my local tire shops don't patch them due to the foam. Also was there a huge difference in road noise? Which brand is the best?
