I realize that there are howling tire posts in various threads, but I'm going to buy a different set of tires sometime before I travel next year and I'd like to know from your experience with whatever tires your running, which ones howl, and which ones do not. And of course it is the front.
I put on a set of Shinko 705's last year, and I'm on my 3rd rear and unfortunately the front still looks good, but it howls between the 45-50 zone, roughly. Air pressure doesn't seem to matter any more than miles on the tire. Traveling around the country it's amazing how much I seem to be in this zone. (two lane roads and all of the towns on them) All of you that run these know, and I don't care about ear plugs, as my hearing is bad and even with earbuds with music playing under my fullface helmet, I'm done with it. So there are a ton of choices as you all know.
