    Default New alloys annoying noise

    Hello

    I have fitted some VX 18" alloys I bought this afternoon
    And I am hearing an rather annoying droning noise when driving, I never had this when I had the 16's on, I would say its coming from the front wheels, would I
    Be right in thinking its the dreaded tyre rolling road noise.

    The tyres are Sunny S3800 225/40/18

    Check the inside edge to see it worn in a stepped pattern I.e one block will be higher than the other that is quiet common. (normally on the rear)

    Have the fronts and backs swapped then, the sunny's will still drone, but they will be less noticeable
