Odd tire problem
I received a set of Michelin Artic Alpine snow tires in the correct size from a co-worker. They had well over 50% tread left and should get me easily through this winter. I had them installed the other day, but they make the weirdest noise. Almost sounds like a wheel bearing going bad or something. No shakes or vibrations. Just a noise that starts at around 30 mph and is at its worst to about 45 mph. I ran it up to about 80 on the highway and it seems to quiet down a fair bit with speed. Seems to also get slightly louder under deceleration and a little quieter under acceleration (loaded and unloaded). Oh, and it seems to be coming from the front.
Anyone have any thoughts? These are supposed to be pretty quiet snow tires from what I understand. Oh, and I have had snow tires on many cars before, but nothing that sounds like this!
