Looking for a nice, quiet set of all seasons. Recommendations?

I almost don't care about handling.....if the new tires reduce noise in the car by at least 15 or 20 percent.

The tires on it NOW are seemingly major contributors to cabin noise, and it's driving us crazy.

Anybody here ever put General Alti-max's on?

Any other "quiet contenders" in an all-season?

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.
