    lould tyres?

    anybody experienced lould tyres?

    i have some avons on the front, and with the window down the amount of road noise is pretty shocking.

    anybody experienced this with these tyres before?

    Im guessing you mean LOUD ?

    some are worse than others ive found

    why not swap fronts to back to see if the noise transfers too - may give u some idea if its definitely the tyres although it probably is

    what profile we talking here?

    How the hell can you hear your tyres over the noise your car makes?!

    I had Avon's on my mk4 a few years ago and they made a racket on the motorway. Get some Goodyear's on there!

    I've got 195/55/15 cheap tyres (not sure what brand, but all i could aford at the time) and there s***, there so noisy, they seem to hum when i'm driving really irritating
    will be going back to toyo's or yokohama's if i've got the cash

    When I bought my wheels they had Yokohama Paradas that were worn on the inside due to the tracking being out on the car they were fitted to previously. They were on the back but they made a right din.

    Went away when I got them changed (sharpish!)
