I should do some googling of this, but I'll be lazy and ask here anyway... never had a truck before and I've been wondering about off road tires vs road tires for trucks/4WD vehicles. I assume road tires are going to give better economy, lower noise, better road holding. Of course, off road tires are going to be better off road... duh. But as a kid, I used to go off roading a lot with friends and family and I don't recall them every swapping out tires. They were usually driving things like a Toyota Landcruiser.Lots of talk about pass through and frank, bit nothing about a noise canceling cabin.
This inferred from Plaid delivery day discussions. Should be great for those opting for off-road tires, even though it will still be loud for folks outside the cabin .
Even with high mileage freeway tires it should allow for a quite cabin.
Of course I am ASSUMING this feature will be available for the CT.
I'm trying to picture the practicality of having off road tires sitting in the garage, I'm guessing already mounted on rims ideally and swapping them out before going off road. This might seem less unusual for those living in colder climes but to me who drives on summer tires all year this seems like a PITA.
Is there a compromise? Some kind of all season equivalent for road/off road tires?
These questions sound horribly naïve, but you have to start somewhere.
