The Daily Telegraph’s motoring agony aunt has been getting to grips with the subject of noisy tyres again.
Reader JF from Poole emailed in to the newspaper columnist ask if his tyres could be to blame for his noisy ride and wanted some advise on reducing the road noise in his Lexus IS250.
He wrote: “I have a Lexus IS250 that has become comparatively noisy. The noise increases with speed, particularly from the front, and I wonder if the tyres are to blame. Do you think I’m right and, if so, what tyres should I use? JF, Poole.”
Honest John replied: “Low-profile tyres become increasingly noisy from the half worn stage. I favour Michelin Pilot Primacy HP, but, being low-rolling resistance, they are relatively hard compound and that, of course, makes them noisier in winter than in summer.”
