Now that EVs have abated engine noise, Bridgestone working on quieting tire noise...

Until EVs became mainstream (2019?), tire noise was ignored due to an abundance of engine noise.
We may soon see tires designed to help EV drivers drive even more peacefully.

TireRack shows it in 18" and 20", but not 22" (not sure if proper specs?) https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...nza+QuietTrack

It was just released in March, so if it gets good feedback (what I found quickly was quite positive), perhaps they'll expand the lineup... particularly by the time I-Pace owners are shopping for new tires! And perhaps other tire manufacturers will take note of the interest and introduce competition.

I can't verify that. See screenshot

I want tires that maximize energy efficiency without compromising traction...noise is of lesser importance.
