Are these tires quiet? They look good!
Yes=, just as quiet as the OEM tires, however I had my PP sound deadened, and it is super quiet now!

If you dont mind me asking what is involved in deadened and how much?
Sure, my sound deadening, was done in conjunction with some other stereo work and components, so I can't really extrapolate the cost, but my guess to do it, is somewhere between $500 -$2,000 depending on the materials and how extensive you go...

At minimum, all the doors should be done, from there you could do the rear area's (spare tire area and side panels).

I suggest you look at YouTube videos..

But it makes a HUGE difference...

Thank you sir! I had my local stereo guy install an audison set up in my f150 and he ask about doing the deadening then but my f150 was already really quite so i skipped on that. Not to mention the audison set up was 4k! I will swing by and talk to him about this. Again, thanks

Oh, I forgot one thing, - knock on the outside of your Passport door, you will hear a hallow, echo-y, metallic sound. AFTER (proper) sound deadening, a knock is solid, like the areas are filled & coated.

Also, I have nearly all Audison gear in my Passport and have a buddy who can buy correctly thru Audison USA, shich allows me to by and sell Audison, Thesis and Hertz gear an huge savings, so if you are looking for anything, get me a part number and I'll shoot you a price... The two shops I deal with always allow me to bring my own equipment for them to install...

Sweet! I was thinking of upgrading with audison. I will check into that for sure.

Stock tires:
All Passport trims come equipped with Continental CrossContact LX Sport tires. The difference is only in sizes:
Sport/EX-L come with 245/50-R20 102H
https://www.continentaltire.com/product/crosscontact-lx-sport-24550r20-102h/?
Touring/Elite come with 265/45-R20 108H (108H is unconfirmed at this point but I suspect it's true as it appears to be the cheapest option)
https://www.continentaltire.com/product/crosscontact-lx-sport-26545r20-108h-0/?

Based on TireRack ratings, the Continental CrossContact LX Sport in general are not that bad. They are rated good for dry and wet. They are, however, mediocre on the snow and treadwear is not that great.

I was looking for better performing all season tires with good performance on the snow while trying not to spend money on new rims. I also tried to find alternatives with minimum impact on speedometer.
So, here are what I see to be a good alternatives to stock tires based on these conditions:

Sport/EX-L
Michelin Defender LTX M/S in 255/50-R20 109H - great overall tire, highly praised, good wet and snow traction - this would be my choice.
Also would fit:
BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT in 245/50-R20 102H - good reviews but not many of them comparing to other
tires
Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus in 255/50R20 109V - more expensive because of the higher speed rating (149 mph)

Touring/Elite
Michelin Defender LTX M/S in 265/50-R20 107T - great overall tire, highly praised, good wet and snow traction
Continental TerrainContact A/T in 265/50-R20 107T - a bit more off-road oriented with still good on-road performance
https://www.continentaltire.com/product/terraincontact-26550r20-107t/?
Both above options for Touring/Elite have slightly lower maximum speed (118 mph vs 130 mph for stock tires). But I do not see this being a problem for this vehicle. Both above would be my choice depending on priorities: the first one will likely would give a better gas mileage and the second would give a better off-road performance.
Also would fit:
BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport LT in 265/50-R20 111T
Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus in 265/50R20 106V

In conclusion: all alternative tires listed above are heavier than stock tires, from about 4 lb (Michelin Defender LTX M/S) and up to 12 lb (Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza Plus) per tire.
I just had the Defenders put on my 2019 Elite. So far so good. Quite and the ride is smooth. The OEM tires were the Continental Cross Contact 265/45 R20s which weren’t bad but I wanted a bit bigger tire to fill the wheel well. The only thing I noticed is an ever so slight rub on the front right if I turn the wheel to the right hard like backing out of a parking space. I’m not concerned about the rub as it will go away once the tires wear a little. I have to say, I really like the way they look.
