Default Lot of tyre noise in Aveo

Hi all,

Aveo makes lot of tyre noise on rough roads. Specifically on Mumbai-pune expressway which is made up of concrete, I find that as soon as you touch decent speed (80kmph), the tyre noise is noticeably high. This is with windows rolled up. On smoother tar roads, the noise disappears and the difference is very clear. I have once travelled in NHC on the same expressway and NHC had little or no tyre noise at all.

Any observations or solutions on this ?

Thanks.

Goodyear radials make a lot of noise above 80kmph. I had them long back on my 800. When I changed to Bridgestone, the sound disappeared.

Most Aveo owners do change the stock tyres immediatly after delivery. Road noise is due to the Goodyear tyres that come as stock.

Go in for bridgestone/michelins if you want a change.

Default Michelin may be a better bet

Not sure about Bridgestone. Michelins definitely are quieter while providing better ride. On some roads my stock bridgestones on petra make noise too.

The moment i read the title of this post i knew the culprit would be Goodyears.........

Ksr !! the initial lot of aveos uptill 2007 came with Goodyears .......... even i am switching to Bridgestone.

BTW ... do u notice car skidding on bad / potholed roads on speeds between 30 and 50 kms/hr ????

Well the tyre noise is primarily caused by tyres & their patterns. Some produce a lot of noise (Goodyear Eagle F1 series) and some produce nearly none (Michelin Energy XM1 series).

So, this problem can be solved in most cases by a simple replacement of tyres with better ones.

Hi all,

Thanks for your replies.
I bought Aveo two months back and it is March 2007 model. It has 185/60 Goodyear tubeless tyres. Didn't know at that time whether tyres are good or bad.

Namit, I haven't noticed any skidding on the stock tyres.

How much approximately the Michelin tyres would cost if we want to replace the stock tyres after 2 months of use. (approx 1500 kms). ?

All you guys,

Apologies for bumping up an old thread but did any of you get around to actually changing the tyres? Specifically to 195s or 205s?

Thanks,

Default Bridgestone Turanza

Some lots of Aveos have Bridgestone Turanza and I was lucky enough to get one of those in my July '07 model.
They are very good on comfort and low on noise.

Yes they are better than Goodyears which also comes with Aveos..
Try Michelins or Yokohama next time they are even better.
