Tyre Noise on my 156

Hi all.

My 55 plate Sportwagon 1.9JTD suffers from a lot of road noise. I had thought I had a wheel bearing going, but the boys at Mobitech, Alfa Romeo Servicing in Canterbury : Mobitech told me it's tyre noise, and not uncommon.

I am running 16" teledials, undoubtedly with budget tyres !

The fronts last a year and the rears, two at about 20K a year.

Any thoughts or experience, please ?!

What make/model are the tyres?

The new EU rules on selling tyres means you can compare the noise levels. My SP SPort Maxx on teh 156 aren't bad but the Bridgestone Turanza's on the MiTo are loud!! When they wear out, they will be replaced with something else.

My SP Sport Maxx are pretty loud, that said, they're on a diesel with GTA dampers so everything is loud...

The loudest tyres I have ever driven on were the Goodyear Eagle F1's on my first GTV.

However the grip was immense.
