Too Much Tire Noise


Recommended Posts

Maybe its b/c i went back to a gs from an LS. Does anyone else have 17"goodwrench traction t/a's? I thought it was my wheels bearings so i replaced both in front. I'm STILL hearing a roaring noise...They seem to perform terrific but this noise is irritating! Am i alone? I'd love to here from anyone who has these tires and hear their opinion. FYI- They sound fine on this LS430 but that's kinda apples and oranges. Thanks, and Happy early easter everyone:)

I have the traction TA and yes they are noisy. I had the mich pilot and I thought they where just as noisy.

It is called having a low profile wider tire.. you going to get noise.

That's what i needed to hear. I was about to return these tires and get the michelin pilots. You probably saved me a few dollar$. If you lived in Louisville i'd buy you a beer, Thanks! :cheers::cheers:

If you are looking for a quiet tire that still has performance and will wear well, the Toyo Versado LX's (245/45-18) that I put on my LS last spring are great tires. I just took off my 'winter' set of tires/rims & put these back on & wow, I really like these tires!

Yesterday, I was at a parking garage downtown & having to roll the window down to take the parking ticket, I couldn't even hear the tread noise as I was driving around in the garage looking for a parking space. No squiek or squeel - total silence. They are just as quiet out on the highway doing 70 mph.

For your size, 225/55-16, they have a 'V' speed rating, and a 40,000 mile treadwear warranty.
