My Platinum is a 4x4 with the off-road package. Anybody have an opinion about how "noisy" these tires at highway speeds? I ordered the off-road because of experience with National Park roads, but I'm wondering if we would be better off with M+S tires since the vast majority of our driving will be on paved roads.

Which tire do you have? My XLT FX4 came with the Hankook AT2s. Super quiet tires.
I don’t think you have the Hankooks.

No idea. Truck is scheduled to be built next week.

Ahh, I see. I am sure you’ll get some good feedback from some of the Platinum FX4 owners here.

My Platinum FX4 came with the Hankook AT2’s and they’re not too loud. If you listen for them, you’ll hear them but they don’t draw your attention. I think they’re louder at 35-45 than highway speeds.

I've got a Platinum with the FX4 package. Hankook's are super quiet, and we drove 1600 miles from Iowa back to Florida. I was pleasantly surprised. Much quieter than the Firestone AT K/O's I had on my FJ Cruiser TRD. But the Hankook's aren't as "nobby" either.

So the Platinum FX4 does come with the AT2. I wasn’t sure.
Now that you mention it I agree with the slight noise in the 35-45 range. At highway speeds the tires are very quiet.
