My tires are killing me.

At first, I expected some more road noise when switching to a nine inch wide tire, but not like this. I travel on some roads and you can't hear yourself think the noise is so loud. I think the frequency it is hitting at, it is making my dome light vibrate. My only guess is that it has to be these tires. They are Mastercraft Tires.

Is everyone's tires this loud, or am I going crazy?

Mine are quiet...even before the exhaust work. Nittos have little to no road noise.

Re: My tires are killing me.

its the tread on the tires. I had a set that did that and it was horrible. I had to have them cut (flattened) to make it go away. Its a temp fix as it will come back... but you can get some more life out of them. My yokahoma avs es100's are not bad at all in the road noise department and no vibration.

That's what I was thinking.

I guess it's time for a new set of tires this summer.

Re: My tires are killing me.

I'm thinking that these will be my next rear tires. I figure they can't be all that noise. You could give them a shot, they'd probably hook up pretty good for you to.

I'd love to run your generals, but I would go through them in a month.

Either that, or break a halfshaft or two from the wheel hope due to no traction.
