[BiturboS4] Toyo Proxes T1S

While we're on the subject of tires and tire noise, I remember
that the Toyo Proxes T1S were highly recommended by some on this
list as an alternative to the Bridgestone S-03.  How does the
Proxes fare in terms of tread noise?  Is it better or worse
than the S-03?  Or for that matter, when compared to the stock
Pirelli P6000?

I thought that the P6000 on my car are relatively noisy and
wouldn't mind a quieter tire when time comes for a change.
However, I wouldn't want to give up dry and wet adhesion
to trade for lower noise, either.

Your experiences on this matter are welcome.
