Question about Cars & Trucks
Wider tyres use more fuel, are prone to aqua-plaining in the wet and are a dam site more expensive to replace. there may be problems with hitting the mudguard edge on turns or hitting body work on turns. On the pro side there is better grip on dry road because of the bigger foot print, larger range of wheels available , better drive-ability at speed.
basically it will be what you want as the pros and cons are about equal. The biggest con is the loss of traction in the wet which is a real meanicing drawback in the rain/snow/ice

Have them inspected at a true tire shop. There are countless reasons why tires can wear fast. Inflation, suspension, belt issues, driving habits and on and on. They may be covered under a manufacturer warranty. Look into nitrogen inflation also.

I suspect the noise you are describing is a bad wheel bearing.
It consists of a hub assembly that is relatively easy to replace. It takes about an hour or less to do with proper tools in a good repair shop.
I would also suggest you get a quality hub as the cheap ones do not last long.
If it as loud as you describe I strongly suggest you get it repaired as soon as possible.
If you have another question for me leave a comment and I will respond to it.
