    Its probably the tyre. The budget brands are much noisier normally than the top brands. i had some matador mp45's. Soooooo noisy it was unreal.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Default noisy tyres

    Yep i had the same problem when i had 4 new budget 'Fullrun' tyres fitted.That also sounded like wheel bearings were going.I have still gone for budget tyres now but they are a different make and tread pattern and so much quieter,how does £92.50 inc p&p for two 215/50/17's sound ?.They grip well in all conditions and they are the correct speed and load rating.Got them off ebay,and had the local garage fit them for a few quid.All in all better than Goodyears,Michelins, Dunlops which are well overpriced and no better.
