Can you suggest quieter tyres?

I need to replace the Continental tyres on my Audi Q5. What would you recommend? I find the road noise is quite high with my current tyres, although that might be just the car.

Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2, Michelin Primacy 4, Continental ContiPremiumContact 5 and Dunlop Sport BluResponse would be the ones I'd look at. I recommend you look at all four on a tyre retail site, like Kwik-Fit, to compare prices and stats like noise levels. Noise can often be due to the tyre tread or the actual car, but a smaller set of wheels with bigger tyres can work to reduce noise levels in the cabin too.
