Just spent a few days with the 950's. ALL the noise (low-speed, high-speed) is gone. I have to blame the off-brands that were on there, since that's the only difference, but maybe a belt had separated or something.
Nice profile on these tires. Anyway, I am happy, the wife likes the quiet and the handling on the dry, and I can move on to my wagon!
