21" OEM Continentals......I looked in the spare well, I have a bunch of Noico left over from my stereo install, I'm gonna line the well with that and maybe pull some rear panels and see whats up.

Less tire sidewall generally = more noise, less tire to absorb. Just my 2 cents.

Sounds really hollow and tinny......like zero soundproofing. I really like the vehicle, just "sounds" cheap, know what I mean? Loud like my smart car! :p

No problem here and we have the 21" RS wheel upgrade. In fact the car is very quiet inside if that's what you are referring to. And I tried out two before this and no problem with those either - Premiere and RS.

I have owned several "higher end" vehicles before my Blazer and this one is by far the quietest vehicle I have ever owned.

Weird....this thing is very loud to me. Lots of wind/road/tinny sounding noise. Caddy we just traded was much quieter, not even close to my f150 or my daughters Escape. My truck has a bunch of Noico installed because of my stereo I installed. I do have the pano roof, but it all seems to be coming from the rear of vehicle.

We have the sun roof too. And as said, this is probably the quietest car we've owned other than the Lincoln LS we owned years ago which had thicker windows. From what I studied about the Blazer they purposely made it with more noise control.

Have A 2021 RS AWD with 21 inch wheels and sun roof. Freeway noise level is significant but something I'll hopefully get used to..

Not ours - that's interesting. We also have the 2021 RS AWD with 21 inch wheels. Our son also bought a Premiere with the 21 inch wheels and they are very pleased with the low level of road noise - mentioned to us right off that it was a large drop in noise from their earlier SUV.

Have you driven yours at freeway speeds (70-80 mph)?

For sure! So has my son and his wife. We use the freeway often - we live in a major metro area. No road noise noted. They had our tires aired up to 39psi and hub lowered that right away but I don't recall noting road/tire noise prior to his doing that. We drove it on the freeway first day out.

I've never sat in the back seat while we are driving but truly there is no road noise in the front. My DIL drives for a living and that was one of her first remarks - lack of road noise on her Premier and how great that was.

Maybe different roads? We know road noise - we have had Corvettes - one was a convertible C5 :) that had lots of road noise .

I'll ask my son - he's a designer at GM. Only thing I've had him comment on is he feels the engine is noisy when you greatly accelerate - he's not sure that wasn't done on purpose.

My hub's negative is the brake and trans combo when coming to a stop but he's very sensitive about that stuff - son said he didn't notice it. Both of these guys are big time mechanical guys so they are looking out for stuff like that.
