Does anyone else have Goodyear Eagle RS tires? If so, do you get alot of road noise? I've never had tires that make so much noise. I know that the fact I have a vert is going to make it louder but geez. I would expect more from a Goodyear product.

My snow tires did the same thing. You're gonna have to deal with it until you sell/replace/get rid of

I've had my Kuhmo's for about 2 weeks now. Super quite, hopefully they stay like that. Also, they got rid of alot of vibration I had in my steering too. Was thinking it was my FCA's but tires helped. Im sure they need to be replaced too though.

Tire noise

The tires have about 7000 miles. The tire pressure is good. There is no change in the sound as I press the accelerator down and let off. The sound only changes as I speed up and slow down. I was concerned it was a bearing but I would think the noise would change as the torque is applied when pressing the accelerator down. The car only has 64000 miles on it. I wouldn't expect any mechanical problems yet. I guess I'm going to have to put the spare on and see if the sound changes. One odd thing is it seems to come from the rear right tire. Maybe I have one bad tire.

Bas rear wheel bearing

Well I thought I had a bad tire but actually had a bad rear right bearing. I just finished changing it out. What a PITA. I even went out and bought the tools I thought I'd need and still didn't have it all. I am surprised to have a bearing failure at only 65000 miles. I guess I must have hit a pothole or something. Thanks to all that contributed step by step procedures so I could atleast try to prepare.
