    I have done DIY sound proof my doors and trunk. Still need to do the roof and the quarter panels. I already reduce the hum sounds so far from the KO2 tires. It's not that bad.

    I use a 16” wheel with Pirelli Sottozero 3 ice and snow tires in the winter.
    While they are more narrow than the 225/55 17” oem, their diameter is the same.
    I don’t intend to off-road and wish I could figure out what improvement to acceleration would result from a 24.8” diameter tire compared to 26.8” diameter tires on a 16” wheel of proper offset/width.
    With 8.7” stock clearance, the 1” change in clearance seems cautious enough.
    Has anyone tried a lower clearance and smaller diameter tire with good results?
