Looking for a quiet, LRR tire for my Honda

I need a set of 185/65/14 LRR tires for my hx wheels, and am not sure which set I should go with. The tires on it now are extremely LOUD, so I'm hoping to find a quieter set. Any suggestions? I found a set of Pirelli P6 or P3000M, both are advertised as LRR and "quiet" but I can't find any reviews.

Any help would be appreciated

LRR tires should generally be quiet; making noise is a waste of energy. OTOH, some quiet tires could be non-LRR, depending on how they were made quiet.

I had Bridgestone "Turanza T" model tires that were quiet and very long-wearing, but I have no idea if they were LRR. They don't make them anymore anyway, though they might make a new model built the same way.

That's the same size as the Insight. The Bridgestone RE92 in that specific size is the lowest rolling resistance OEM tire available.

Tirerack - $75

Walmart Ulysses ST/Marshall 791 Touring is good for a cheap LRR with useful wet and snow traction. Seem quiet enough to me.

Thanks for all the responses, I knew about Tirerack but I can't search for just LRR tires, so thats why I was looking for suggestions, preferably people who have had good experience as far as MPG is concerned

My VX came with a set of Pirelli P3000M, they had more than a third of there tread left, but they were the loudest, nosiest tires that I have ever had, nearly sounded like a pick up truck tire. I bought a entire used VX wheel/tire combo from a local C.L. seller that came with nearly new Michellin. It is like a different car. The tires are 175 vs the 165. I not going to sweat the difference for the $150 I picked the set up for.

I bought a set of Nokian i3 tires for my wife's '98 HX a few months ago. They are 51 max psi tires, and she's been getting the same FE as the previous BF Goodrich (that I now know were LRR). All Nokian tires are LRR, and I can speak from experience having bought two sets of Nokians for my former VX that they are the best tires I've ever owned: great handling and braking (both wet/dry) and very LRR. You can read about the i3 here:
