Default tyre/noise question

I'm looking to replace the fronts after a track day. My tyre of choice = AD08r. Openeo do them in 2 options:





only difference I can see is the noise level. Is there really more than one variant of this tyre?

I don't believe there is. But if in doubt, buy the cheaper, quieter ones

everyone knows noise = speed

Just looked up Blackcircle and they have both noise level types as well. £111.52 (noisy) and £117.36 (noisier) with a further 10% discount on top.

You piqued my interest so I fired off an email to Yokohama asking what the difference was, beyond noise. Their response is below:

Good Morning Mr Bray

Thank you for your enquiry. You should experience no difference in performance between F7320 and R2522. R2522 have superseded the F7320 and if you are replacing like for like, these can be run together.

I hope this information helps

That was a quick reponse from them. So, R2522 is the newer, quieter and cheaper one?
