Bummed OUT...Tire NOISE..!


Recommended Posts

~24,000 miles on my '01 C4 and now on the third set of tires in an attempt to get "quietness". Tires seem fine until about 8,000, to 10,000 miles when the tire noise becomes too intrusive. Thinking of using those spray cans of undercoat in the wheelwells and liners to try and quiet things down. Anyone tried this..?

Any thoughts otherwise...?

These big tires tend to make a lot of noise at that mileage because the tread wears off and it is like having two big flat pieces of rubber rolling down the road. I do not think soundproofing the inner wheel aprons is going to have much impact on that....But maybe someone knows differently. I usually feel lucky if I even get 8-10K from a set of tires :)

Good luck.

Current Michelins have LOTS of tread left, as did have the previous sets when swapped out.
