Tyre noise depends on the tread pattern/road surface it is a bad tyre depot that cannot tell you which are quiter than other makes,same as ones that last longest. most customers buy the cheapest they can get and complain about the car...)any block pattern tyre will be noisy(look at the tread pattern on a limo)the only way you can be sure of getting a quiter ride is to email the maker direct.BUT be warned you may pay 3--4 times the price of a "standard tyre" and any suv is no block pattern, no grip in mud/snow....

Mazda tribute 2005 rack and pinion bad ? sterring wheel shakes a lot !!!

Before you get into the rack, check the smaller things. You may find an unbalanced wheel or a damaged tire or wheel. If that's not the case, there are a number of steering and suspension parts that could also be the cause. Tie rod ends, ball joints etc... If you don't have the tools or knowledge to figure this one out, I recommend bringing it to a shop, possibly the same shop that can check your tires and wheels. Many places will do this for free because they want your business! If you've already started this research and are looking for more specific answers, feel free to ask! Please let me know how you make out and good luck!

Tire noise on mercury mariner so so loud, is there a better tire than the continental contitrac 235x70?

Tires offer a number of trade-offs. Loud tires provide superior tread wear and a harsher ride, are loud. Soft tires provide a smooth ride, quiet operation and usually fewer miles.

Please go see your Goodyear or Firestone or Continental (or other major brand) tire professional and discuss your concerns with him or her to find the best tire for your application and driving style.

Well ,2004 tribute there is a noise, all the time and I was told that may be from tires,that is from tire shop, but tires are still about 80% left, and if I change tires and the noise is still there what...

If you have large tire tread then it is probably tire to road noise, this is nothing to worry about. The best way to tell is driving on different road surfaces. the noise will change as the road changes.

Loud noise inside the car when driving at high speed and even low speed

with the short description you gave, If I was to take a guess I would say you have a wheel bearing noise. Mazdas are very common for this problem.

Good Luck and I hope this helps a little.

2006 and 2008 Tires making wabbling noise

It sounds like you have a wear pattern in the tires. If the tires wear rotated from left to right this problem will be exacerbated because they are going in the opposite direction. If you can't live with it then rotate back to the original positions or replace tires
