    Default please help.......

    move if required.

    car:

    2002 vectra c 2.2dti sxi

    mileage:

    104,000

    problem:

    after fitting two new rear tyres, the car is so noisy it makes your ears bleed....
    noise starts at about 25mph and gets worse especially at motorway speeds.

    the steering also feels really light sometimes kicking off bumps making the steering wheel do the same.

    Ive had a winter check done as well and they couldn't fault the car, but the problem still exists...

    please help - please ask any questions......thanks.

    Maybe the rear tyres are just noisy?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    hi - just checked the tyres are fine.

    the noise and vibration comes through the front of the car.

    the new are kumho ku31 and the old were toyo's - both made the sound.

    it doesnt feel that the sound is coming from the rear though.

    whats the tread pattern like? I had winter sport tyres on until i swapped them just before christmas, and they were a lot noisier then my new ones, also recheck that the nuts are tight and that they didnt screw up the balancing

    in fact, swap the front and rears around, see if that makes any difference

    Confused! At what point did the noise start to appear? - before the new rear tyres were fitted or already present before that?
