On my 2004, I went through several tires and don't recall any particular tire noise issues.
My 2011 came equipped with good old Trailwings, which oddly enough, impress me a lot with their nice handling on paved roads. (Note that the 2011 got a fork brace and Sonic springs within the first 200 miles.)
During a recent ride through the Cascades of Oregon on paved two lane roads I discovered what I think is a pretty loud "howling" noise from the front Trailwing.
Has anyone else noticed this? Does it get better or worse as the tire wears?
I can't really hear it at freeway speeds, presumably due to the wind noise covering it up.
