I purchased an ALFA 159 Ti a few days ago and took it for its first long run today, there seems to be some odd intermittent noise which sounds like a droning wheel bearing, its difficult to determine what corner its coming from, it seem to be more apparent when travelling upwards of 40mph though. Its also just passed an MOT so assume any dodgy bearings would have been found.
I've been reading about tyre noise on some other threads, the car runs on 2 conti sports on the front, but there is 1 accelera?? and 1 pilot sport on the rear ( I don't like having odd tyres so there will be changed pretty soon), could the odd tyres be the cause of the noise?, admittedly the noise sounds like it could be on the same side as the accelera tyre so i'm going to swap the tyres round later today to see if the noise moves.
There also appears to be some resonance from the steering wheel when I hear the sound, its very very annoying!
Any suggestions ?
