I might have to tackle this after reading this very good write up.
It's also the spacing of the tread grooves. Mostly they are unequal and random in size - this reduces drone on the highway. Hard to see if yours have different sizes.Generally, the lower the treadwear rating, the fewer the tread grooves. A slick would produce far less noise than an all season radial.
My tires have a rating of 100.

KD have you tried different tires to reduce "road" noise?
That's why they invented loud mufflers and stereos!Ah, the dreaded road noise!...
This is an irritation I have as well. In reality, the car rolls back almost nothing, but it is still annoying to have someone very close to your back bumper. Now, when I come to a stop on a hill and someone else is right behind me, I let my car roll backwards just a little bit as the other driver is stopping. I have found it keeps them further away most of the time...I've found that most drivers that line up behind me at stop lights don't even consider the possibility that this car might have a manual transmission and IF I'm on a hill, I might roll back a bit on take-off.
Hey Kern, someone posted pictures of your Charger at the Show. It's on FB. Looks great.
