I have an 07 V-10 that only sees sand if driven offroad and rarely at that. I would like to change my tires to a quiet, smooth highway type cruising tire. Has anyone else done this and what tire was used.
I have two sets of wheels.
My original V10wheels (Fatboy?) use street tires. Toyo Proxes, I believe. In the standard size. These tires are quiet on-road, and all but useless off-road.
I also have some Porsche Cayenne take-offs that I acquired for off-road use. These are fitted with Nitto Terra Grapplers, also in the standard size. The Nitto tires have quite i bit more road noise.
I am having really good luck with these in a 255/55/18 109H

BTW... I own a condo down in your area and plan to visit a few days around Christmas if you would like to test drive mine for a reference.
