    The '14 SXT came with Nexen CP662s .. awful, awful tires in my opinion. I just ordered a set of 225/45ZR18 BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S. They should be here for a weekend install, but I can't imagine I could like a tire less than the Nexens.

    The Optimas came with either 17" or 18" tires from the factory. The early models had a Hankooks line which was super noisy. Newer models have other brands which are far greater. ANY tire as it wears increases road noise. There are a couple stickied wheel threads here in the Forums, have you gone through them?

    As for brands, there are a lot of Yokohama fans here (me included), as well as Continental, and I just recently purchased a set of 19" Nexen NFera AU7's which are pretty nice as well.

    I switched the stock nexens to generals and they are much better. Better traction during wet weather and the ride quality is better.
