Default Can Your Car Humm???? Mine Can

....but only when I'm going like 120km/h. It'* like a funny humming sound and it almost feels like something is gently rubbing and I can feel the friction through my feet on the floor. As soon as i drop back down to 110, it goes. Any ideas?

What about road condition.. is it usually around a stretch of road that wasn't paved properly? Or worse case scenario.. the belts within your tire is starting to go

Be careful with brand new tires since they are new doesn't mean they don't have mishaps.. a friend of mine 2 weeks ago bought a set of new tires 3 weeks prior.. driving to Wal-mart.. he'* left rear tire blew for no reason.. thank god he was going slow and not on the highway when this happened.. apparently the belt shifted inside and allowed a weak spot of the wall and it gave out. Fortunetly, he got it changed free of charge ( minus balancing ). Has this only started to occur only when you got your new tires ? Where did you get them, and how much ?? IF you don't mind me asking... I wan to get a set so bad ( so I can burn the **** out of the front ones with a smoke show.. and keep the rear pair as emergency spares )

Does the noise seem to change in pitch when you slow down or accelerate?

If so it could be a bearing which would not be cool, kinda expensive

Did you get an "Agresive" tire tread pattern? If so, then it should change with speed (the humming that is)!

No...as far as I know they are the same type of tires that come with the car. I got them from a friend of my dad'* for winter tires...they came off of a 99 Lesabre.

If i had to pin it....I would say it'* coming from the tires.
