    Default Tyre Noise

    Vauxhall had my car today for what i thought was a dodgy wheel bearing, turns out it is the front tyres making all the noise so can anybody recommend a good tyre to stop this noise, i have had a quick look on the net and found some Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110 for £102 each fitted, does anybody else have these tyres, and are they any good? or should i say, are they QUIET

    As a rule of thumb. Less grooves = less noise
    More grooves = more noise.

    Vehicle : Vectra C OPC Estate

    Trim : OPC / VXR

    Engine : Z28NET

    Year : 2006

    Default

    I´ve just fitted the new Continental Sport Contact 5 P on my 20´s

    The best tire I have ever tried.. So quiet, perfect in wet rainy conditions and very comfortable even in that size..
    The size is 245-30/20 in the front and 255-30/20 at the back..

    Hankook is also a very good tyre.. I have tried Hankook S1 Evo (Ventus K107) and it was a good quiet tyre.

    I have a very quiet and cheap tyre called Minerva F105 (also known as Rotalla F105 from mytyres website) I also found that Neuton NT5000 were exceptionally quiet, plus very grippy. Was disappointed by my Michelin's they were harsh and noisy

    That's quite expensive for a Hancook, there are better tyres out there for that price

    What tyres are currently fitted (brand and size)?
    How long have the front tyres been on?
    Did you swap the tyres are they wear?

    It's unusual to get noise from "just the front"
    This suggests the tyres were left on the rear for at least 20K miles then swapped to the front, suffering from block wear
    If you inspect the inside edges you will see they may be a different texture to the centre or outside edge, this is caused by the camber on the rear axle
    On replacing the tyres, swap the rears to the front, and have a full camber alignment carried out

    Never heard of that one before, the noise is normally caused by the tyre material and construction type
    Larger blocks typically result in more noise

    I have compared numerous tyres
    The worst noise normally comes from hard compound directional split blocks
    The least noise normally comes from soft compound rain channel non-directional

    Compare the size of the blocks on the GoodYear GSD3 to the Dunlop ST, the Dunlop is almost half the size

    I had hankooks before, they come as standard on new hyundai's and i have had 5 in a row, they were fine in the dry, but when it rained its was like driving on ice, so in the end whenever i got one, i went and put michelins on, the difference was staggering.

    Then had goodyears on my last vectra, it understeered something cronic, put michelins on and it was so much better.

    Now have good years on my sri, can't wait to replace them with michelins. (I get them from costco, its £107 for the sri and they've got 20% off on top of that too if buy all four, worth a look)

    And they're quiet too.

    N.B, one thing about Hankooks is they have staggering grip in the snow, brilliant snow tyre

    The Michelin is also my first choice in tyres
    However I have already had one set on my Vectra C and not noticed much difference, so went back to the Good Year (about 20% cheaper than the Michelin)

    I had Michelin HX MXM 205/55R16 on both my Vectra B and Mondeo Mk3
    My local tyre distributor doesn't seem to be able to get the HX MXM in 225/45R17, I would just like to compare them!
