Just a quick question on if anyone that has any recommendations for a quieter interior. If any one has undercoated underneath their vehicle, did it help a bit with some sound absorption? I know in previous project cars, I'd use some window flashing from Lowes/Home Depot that reduced the sound a bit. Before anyone asks, no, never got the tar smell when it got hot (100F+/37C+). I know tires play a part as well. Mine are pretty worn down and might pull the trigger on some LT Cooper AT3's or BF KO2's. Both are pretty quiet tires despite their aggressive patterns.

I bought a Jetta wagon a while back and the dealership sold me on an expensive rubber spray-on undercoat that was supposed to make the ride quieter. There was zero difference in road noise.

There are rubberized stick-on matts that glue onto the floorboard under your carpet that get solid reviews. A bit expensive and they add a bit of weight.

Tires probably make the biggest difference. I currently have Firestone Destination LE2s which are noticeably quieter than a comparable set of Michelin LTX.

Thanks Dan. I have some Cooper HTPs on there right now that are barely starting to hit the wear bars. Was thinking about getting some BF Goodrich KO2's on there, but I never really go off road, though I'd like to. If anyone has the Cooper AT3's how was the interior cabin noise?

I've thought about undercoating for the sound, but was on the fence about it since I wasn't sure if it was worth the effort.
