I put a set of Cross Terrains on my 99 about 2 years ago,they were
quiet then, and quiet now. How is the ride? Is it the same or more
harsh? If it's more harsh, check to see if you got a higher load rating
on your new tires, which means a stiffer sidewall and harsher ride.
On my 99, the load rating is 105 for a P235/75R15. I don't know what
size the 2002 uses.
