    Hi

    My wife drives a Citroen C1, and when I am with her the thing that annoys me most is the road noise from the tyes. Obviously being a tiny commuter car they've cut down on the noise insulation. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, it now needs new tyres and I really want to fit something quieter than the Mitchelin Energy tyres that are currently on it.

    The size is 55/165R14 - has anyone any ideas. :lease:

    Thanks

    I understand the energy tyres ARE harder, as it 'costs' less energy in rolling resistance....

    Pretty much anything will be quieter, but I'm sure there are some 'quiet' ones around too...

    That makes sense - so from practical experience has anyone found any tyres that would fall into the quiet category ? ?
