Anyone put low-noise tires on their Model S?

Anyone put low-noise tires on their Model S?

E.g., Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus

I'm curious how much of a difference they make with road noise.

I jump on the goose pedal in parking lots just so the tires DO make noise!
I like the sound of the tires, especially in hard corners as they really dig in!

Hey Mrspaghetti,

I have the BTSP on my S as the winter tires. I have been very happy with them with the only exception being that they are easy to break free with a little gas (P85). From talking to other owners I'm not sure if this is much different than any other 19's as I haven't tried them. They certainly are quieter and softer than the 21s. It was like driving a different car when I got the summer 21's put back on. They are LRRs and I did see very good numbers from them, but again, I don't have anything to compare against other than the 21's. Where are you?

I'm not happy with tire noise from my standard 21" tires and I'm looking at alternatives before I get to many miles on them.

I'm in Houston so no need for winter tires :-) I also don't have my S yet - had to cancel at the last minute for financial reasons or would have had it probably in February :-(

But it's just a matter of time, so thanks for the review.
