    Default Interesting tyre roar observation

    Hi all



    When I picked up my '06 VVT last week it had fairly loud tyre roar, kinda like someone blowing over the top of a bottle at 70mph.

    It's fitted with Bridgestone's 215/55/16. I just increased the pressures to 35 front & 38 rear (the eco pressures) and it's 80% reduced.

    If anyone is having a similar issue this is definitely worth a try!

    Great info there thanks, was your like someone blowing over a bottle? I originally thought bearings but they normally make a whining sound I think. I can't afford new tyres and the current ones have good tread so I can live with it now I guess.... I might get the wheel bearings checked in any case! Weird sound though.

    Saying that the roar on my car is directly related to road surface so I don't think it can be bearings?!
