Dale, you seem to be the tire guy.  I have the Goodyear run flats on the C5.  We  have just made a couple trips with the car and they are one noisy tire.  Road noise is enough that driving the car is not the best, maybe with ear plugs or a radio with ear plugs.  I am going to put new tires on in the spring do you have any suggestions for a good run flat that runs a little more quiet.

Ed these 2 tires seem to get pretty good reviews, go to tire rack & read the reviews on different tires. you'll see some are noisy some not. Others are terrible in rain etc.  Probably your best bet is to get away from the run flats then your options will really increase. I considered run flats when I went to 17"'s on the 68 , but decided to keep the old AAA card handy instead.
