Smile Most silent Tires ?

I have an IS currently riding on the stock Potenza's. I feel they are pretty noisy but very durable , have done nearly 50,000 Km's.

So I want to change to something really very quiet as it's very important for me. Apart from that the tire should be very durable i.e high tread life and look as good as the Potenza's. Brands don't really matter to me. Grip level can just be decent , I usually just baby my car with very limited spirited driving.

What do you guys advise me to buy ?

The choices really hinge on whether you have 17" or 18" wheels. In 17" I would look at the Michelin Primacy MXM4 and the 18" the Continental Extreme Contact DWS. Not many touring tires to choose from in 18's so you'd be better of choosing a quieter performance tire.
