    About 6 months ago I reviewed the Continental Contisilent tires and measured the noise they generated versus the regular Michelin tires, without the foam padding. It turned out to be only a 1 dB difference, which is barely audible. After putting on foam padded tires on the Arachnid rims, I actually noticed a difference, so I looked into how the stuff works.
    Turns out my measurement was right, but it was the wrong measurement to measure the effect. So, I had to review my opinion on those types of tires now...
