Have a Nice Day? Anyone running BFG Traction T/A's?

Just got the new BFG Traction T/A's 2 weeks ago and have been enjoying them. Not enough of the wet stuff yet to make any judgments on the rain performance, but they got lots of hold on the dry or slightly wet roads so far.

BUT... these guys produce a lot on road noise... at least I think so. Between 40-70 the road actually gets a bit intrusive. Has anyone else noticed this? I'm wondering if perhaps I got one bad tire.... doubt it but ...hmmmm.

i dont think the tractions are all seasons, i think they're summer performence only... and BFGs i think wear out FAST (specially the KDWs) and alot of road noise (again same with the KDWs)

Yes the Kdws are really noisy. Bad enough that I definetly won't be getting another set, which is too bad because otherwise they are very good. Maybe noisy tires are a BFG trait these days.
