Road Noise and tyre choice for a 3.2 GT
Posted this in the general Discussion forum but perhaps should have posted in here.
My new to me 3.2 GT is proving to be as good as I had hoped but I have noticed a lot of road noise from anything other than race track smooth surfaces.
I have noticed that while the origional Pirelli P6000 are on 3 of the wheels, the driver side front has a Bridgestone Potenza on it. Could this mix and match approach be causing this excess road noise or could it be something else. Tyre pressures have been checked witha digital gauge so it's porly inflated tyres.
The car is 3 years old and only has 15k miles on the clock so I can't seeing it being anything to do with the suspension.
My best guess so far is to put 2 new P6000 on the front and see what difference that makes.
Any suggestions welcome.
