    Default Vectra C Caravan / Estate - higher speed strange sound

    Hi,

    I don't think so tyres cause the problem - it's another kind of sound
    engine is 1.8 petrol

    about 140,000 miles ; 2004
    I don't have so many miles on these tyres (dunlop winter sport) - and it's another kind of sound - strange sound started after driving quite fast about 1,5h and now exists when the speed achives about 55mph and more)

    recently car service (maintenance) has been made on about 130,000 miles, now is done about 140,000 - (I didn't check bearings now) - it seems that sound source is under bonnet but not from wheels;
    (car is in gear (e.g. 5 and and I don't change gear))
