Road noise is pretty low, but you do get a very mild drone, as compared to the stock tires (when new). I only got 14K miles out of the stock junk Goodyear Wrangler SRAs. The new BFGs are no louder than the worn out stock tires. On a side note make sure you get a 4 wheel alignment done. My alignment was out enough in that 14k miles that the stock tires had the following tread depths at replacement (5/32 in, 3/32 in, 3/32 in, 2/32 in). I just hit 3k miles on the new BFGs and they still look great.
