    I have an 08 mariner with the same tire noise. Also the tires are cupping. Talked to the dealer and he said he has heard of it A LOT!!! I have to pay for an alignment my self to prove it to be the tires. next I have to buy a new set of the same crummy tires and then maybe I will be reimbursed for the new tires. Not sure what I'll do yet. Help Mary

Just had dealer suggest turnng tires inside out on rims. I experienced at least 60% immediate noise reduction. Unfortunately, wasn't aware of this trick with the first set. This was second set of tires with only 30,000 miles and intolerable noise. Dealer says more improvment in next 1,000 miles driving. I saved buying a third set of tires with only a total of 73,000 miles. Hope this information helps someone else.

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.

Thanks for your interest in

Noisy Tire Solution

2005 Mercury Mariner noisy tires solution. Take tires off rim and turn inside out. My dealer recommended this and 50% of the noise went away immediately with more expected in the next 1,000 miles. This was my second set of tires with only approximately 30,000 miles and noise I could no longer tolerate. Hope this tip helps someone else.

There is a very loud humming noise coming from the front left tire! plz I await your reply. Thks.

You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop

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....

Tire wear

does the car make noise from the rear when you go at a high speed. If it does it may be your bearings. I had my bearing wear out on me at 15000 miles.
