    They all make a noise when they rub on the road.

    You have a D2 with 18" wheels and want tyres with NO NOISE that are reasonably priced but will still handle mud etc ... Holy grail, mate, holy grail ....)

    Pirelli ATR are almost silent on my D3 they replaced Pirelli Zero which were a pure road tyre, best of all the ATR are meant to be very long lasting.

    I don't know whether it's just me, but I've never been bothered by tyre noise. The only time I can remember hearing the tyres I had just changed a track rod end and was driving to a garage where I could get the tracking reset; yeah, they did squeal a bit on the corners that day!
    I think it was Avon Rangers used to make that characteristic Land Rover noise on the road.

    Deestone extra traction were awful, sounded like a helicopter was chasing you.
    My hankook rto3s (mt) seemed quite quiet. Well they didn't sound louder than the v8 anyway.

    I picked up a set of 5 barely used general grabber at2s in a bigger than standard size for only 250 quid, theyre mega in the mud and only slightly noticeable noise with window down :)
