Will mainly be down the the tyres themselves. Used to drive a valtra that had Michelin’s on they were replaced with BKT’s. The BKT’s were shockingly loud at 50k, they were 650/65/38, 540/65/28

Just had new rear bkt’s and they are terrible for road noise only changed them due to side walls splitting on Michelin’s causing a puncture but still had plenty of life in them

There was a 6930 heading down Honiton bypass the other day pulling an empty 2 axle bale trailer, the thing was bouncing down a smooth road at every wheel turn, I have not seen anything like it before.

Standard or Premium with front suspension? Our 6630 standard can get a right bounce on. If I was needing to do any significant road haulage with it, I wouldn't.
