Tire noise is bugging me

Trying to alleviate some tire noise from my car and wondered what I should use?
Thanks

My Pirelli's have been horribly noisy almost from the git-go (WAH-WAH-WAH-WAH etc). I just live with it. I have 36K miles on the car and looking forward to replacing them when the time is appropriate like maybe at 50K?

Do you have the stock P zeros, if so, DITTO. Although I'm pretty sure nothing can be done about it. I have rotated, cross rotated and crossed my fingers, all with no luck. I am just stuck with roar..roar..roar noise at highway speeds until I shell out some cash for new rubber, or trade it in..I do that sometimes.

When the weather warms up I'm installing boom mat sound deadening, doing it more for audio reasons, but the idea is to minimize road noise and would probably be a solution for your tire noise issues...also had tire noise, but cranking the stereo cured that for me.

My stock pirellis finally ran out and I got nitto motivos. They ride smooth as silk and the lack of noise is amazing compared to the pirellis.

I noticed it started after dropping the suspension and it only got worse with 11 inches of rubber and 20" wheels. Cranking up the sound system is not really cutting it.

After rotating/balancing, frontend aligning etc I had my tire shop take a look at them. He noted that they were all "cupping" on the edges which would cause them to sing on the road. Since each sings its own tune, their combination of slightly different frequencies causes the WAH WAH sound. I've also been told that noise is a characteristic of a performance tire.

The tires have less than 300 miles and as I mentioned it started when I lowered the car. I would like to rip the interior out and add some sound proofing, I just don't know what to use.

What tires do you have exactly?


edit...found your other thread with your new wheels and Nitto tires. I'm not surprised those Nittos aren't very quiet. One question though and something you should have mentioned; that thread was posted late February of last year and you say you only have 300 miles on the tires. Has the car been sitting for an entire year? If so, no wonder they are making noise. Flat spot central!

My recommendation would be to replace the front NT555 tires with the Invos to match the rears.

Yes the car has sat up on jacks with nitrogen in them.

I don't think it's so much that the tires are noisy, which they kind of are, but that the rest of the interior is so well insulated from wind noise.

The tires are the noisiest part about the car actually. It's so weird how loud they can be. I think the car would do greatly with another set of tires.

Tires make a huge difference in noise and in ride quality.

Surprisingly putting the stockers back on did not do much. I think now that the tires are actually closer to the body its resonating. Maybe I will try some sound insulating foam.

I don't think an abundance of insulation is my problem. The car did not sound like this for the first 8k miles, now it is louder than my Jeep Wrangler on 33in Mud tires. Just imagine the somewhat quiet GT interior with a WAH WAH WAH so loud that 6 blocks on the Shaker 500 cannot mask it. I don't want to buy new tires when these are not even halfway worn out. I think the tires should have some sort of warranty (excluding abuse) to replace noisy or cupping tires.
