Default BFG G-Force KDW2 Question....

I have read everywhere that these tires are loud. My question is, would one of these tires be SIGNIFICANTLY louder running on low treadlife. I just swapped wheels with someone and the ones i got back have these tires mounted to them. Three tires are at 95% life and one is at 25%ish. My car literally vibrates at slow speeds and hums like my old 36" TSL's. I plan on getting a new replacement tire anyway, but let me know if the new tire will help, or if thats just the way these things are... Thanks

In general you should NOT run a subaru with tire of different wear. different wear means different circumference. that means one wheel has to spin more time to go the same distance as the other 3 wheels. I would change those tires ASAP. As far as the noise goes...not sure if its related to the above issue, but if all those tires were at one point the same, something was wrong with the car, and the low tire could have uneven wear patterns, causing the noise.
