Try weaving side to side slowly while driving if the noise changes you have a bad wheel bearing. Also you can jack up the front end and check wheel play by placing hands at top and bottom. Hope this helps.

I just bought this car and it seems like it has really loud road noise, are they all like this? I wouldn't think so. My last car was a 2001 Buick Park Avenue and alot quieter. What might be the problem?


they are NOT all like that. mine certainly isn't.

the most common cause of excessive road noise is the wrong tyre pressure.

i normally run mine on 32 psi on the front and 34 psi on the rear

i have had problems in the past with some tyre tread patterns causing road noise on particular types of road surface.

check the tyre pressures first.

if the noise persists, feel free to ask for more ideas and solutions

Excessive tire wear, 29000 miles. Tires are cuping out and roaring. Tire dealer (Goodyear) said it was alignment. The truck always drove perfect.but I had it aligned anyway and noise is unbearable! 2008...

I am not sure I can help you much, I have bought, sold, used and abused tires all my life so I will try to help... First if you bought big aggressive tires that look cool, don't expect them not to make noise. Second, if you have ever run them underinflated and the cupping and adverse wear has started the only thing that may help reduce but not eliminate noise it is tire rotation.... Third aggressive tread is always noisy... And gets noisier with age. You have already aligned the truck, that is a step in the right direction. Keep tires properly inflated and rotate them often to square tread back up. Once cupping is minimised noise should go down. Just so you know I have learned about tire through a lot of personal experience. Don't by an aggressive tread if 98% of the time you or on the highway for the once or twice you may go off road... It's not worth it...

Winter Tires for Toyota Sienna 2008 LE

Going one "step" larger is fine but don't forget that in going to a slightly taller tire, you will be changing the final drive ratio. If you have any performance problems (like going up-hill) taller tires will make that problem worse. Your speedometer will be affected slightly as well (car will be going a few miles per hour faster than what you see on speedometer).
Best thing to do about choosing a winter tire has little to do with size and more to do with tread design...The more aggressive the tread and side lugs, the better it will go through snow. But with aggressive tread comes road don't go overboard with that unless you don't mind road noise. Best tread design I've found is something similar to Goodyear Wrangler R/T. They seem to be a good compromise between both.

Tire tread pattern plays a big part when it comes to road noise.

This tread pattern would be a loud tire.

These 2 tread pattern would be less noise.
The best type of tire you need is a non-aggressive touring tire.

2001 Sebring LXI convertable. Loud rumbling noise that increases as accelerating increases. Sounds like a rumble strip on the highway. I changed the tires with no change in the noise.

Bad hub bearing. Drive the car on a straght EMPTY road .@30 mph or when noise is audible, **** the wheel left than right (similar to a race car warming. tires) and listen if there is a change in the sound if so its a front bearing if not it should be a rear bearing .Jack the rear of the vehicle up and spin the tire holding onto the strut. Feel and listen for a vibration or noise. This should pinpoint that elusive noise.Let me know Good hunting
