Tire noise index
by: Wheels Etc

I simply Googled Tire Noise Index and found that the EU has an index for just about every passenger tire tread on the market. I did not get that specific list of results but I am confident you will with a similar search from your own computer.

I am not familiar with that being part of our National Transportation and Safety requirements in the US. I do know that truck tires sold in the US use similar information in their sales practices due to the vehicle damage that can be the result of very noisy tires. Noise and vibration often go hand in hand and at certain times can create harmonics that lead to serious damage both to the structure of the vehicle and the performance of the engine and other power train parts.
