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.
Thanks

Re: Changing to Highway Tires (handi2)

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.
