    It would make sense to do this, since you hear a lot more road noise in a Tesla since you don't have the white noise of an engine to drown out the noises. However, maybe it shouldn't make sense if you wanted to drown out the little noises, you would want to have the white noise of the tires at least.
    It's definitely something people who live along a busy road might appreciate! :)

    I wish they would focus on wind noise. Far bigger problem than the tire noise.

    I've done the Conti's in noise reducing and non and found no appreciable difference (agreeing with the above article).

    Good to know. I might cross that out of my list of potential replacement. I wasnt able to find it on Tires.com or Tirerack.com in any case.
