Long drives at highway speed can be challenging in this car due to the noise
produced by the Eagle F1's that came stock on my 2013 Boxster S
( 19 " wheels).
Has anyone changed from Eagles to Michelin or Pirelli and
noticed a significant improvement in tire noise?

The F1s seem quieter to me than my 08 CS or CR were with PS2s. Of course, it is not apples to apples but my impression is that the F1s are not all that bad for noise.

I had the F1 tire on a 987 and thought they were quiet.
The Pirelli tire noise--on the 981-- seems to depend on the road surface, ranging from fairly quiet on new asphalt to very loud on the old stuff.

My F1s vary A LOT according to road surface, from quiet to really obnoxious. I'm hoping Michelins will be better.
