Tire noise

I've got staggered 18's with nexen n3000 tires and it sounds like I have a bad bearings in the front. I've pulled the wheels spun the hub and tried to shake it with the wheel on the bearings feel good. The noise is different on different asphalt that's why I think it's the tires. Anyone have any experience with these tires?

Kind of a roar sound? My Goodyear F1's make this noise and originally made me think I needed to replace the front wheel bearings. I know these aren't your tires but at least your not the only one!

Easy way to check is run your hand on the inside of your tire if you feel a up and down pattern its called cnopping happens alot when not rotated or bad alignment with stagered tires almost always nexen tires are very hard compound and will do this so are eagle f1 this doesnt mean bad just the way there made

Bad thing about staggered directional tires is that I can't rotate them....

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one. It's been driving me crazy trying to track the noise.
