Reducing tyre noise swapping left right

Someone on D4 pointed out swap tyres left right so I thought I would give it a go.

I have 6 (2 spares) Pirelli all terrain plus tyres 255/60R18. Would have preferred 17 inch rims but that is a whole other story with "poodle rims"!

To date I had only done 1 swap putting the 2 spares on the front to share the wear between the 6 tyres. The front tyres were still quiet to date.

I swapped the tyres to the opposite sides of the car & front rear, while putting on the 2 used spares making sure the wear is running the other direction.

The car is very quiet due to acoustic insulation but I could hear the 2 more worn tyres on the rear.

I am surprised at the improvement in quietness swapping left right. The 2 used spares I put back on, are actually a bit more worn than the 2 most worn tyres I took off.

So from this experience I can say if the tyres are noisy swap sides so they rotate in the opposite direction. It's worth the effort, even with a scissor jack as in my situation.
