#1 of 4 Tire Road Noise-2012 Equinox
Nov 01, 2011 (9:18 am)
New car yesterday. Noticed on the drive home that the tire road noise on raods that are not really smooth surface is extremely annoying.
Driving on smooth concrete and asphalt surfaces the noise is OK
Anyone have any info on this.
Traded in my trusty 2004 Blazer (Fred) Good trade pricing (76502)
MSRP pricing pretty strong. Some room to adjust.
Too many whistles and bells to figure out....(grins)

A. check tire pressure
B. size and brand? Maybe they have change brands for '12. My 17" Michelins are quiet as church mouse. I know the 18" wheels generate a little more bump over the road.
#4 of 4 Concrete Roads

Almost forgot since we have primarily black top roads in the northeast, but down south where concrete is king there we did experience a little road noise. It was clearly attributable to the concrete because there were sections where the surface switched from BT to C and C to BT where you could hear the change. Even then I didn't consider it intrusive and basically didn't notice the noise on concrete after a few sec's. But that may be attributable to cranking up the volume a bit on the southern country stations.
