Most winter tire tread designs will do that. The tread is designed to HOLD snow....cuz snow sticks to snow. This requires a more 'open' tread. Betcha that'* it.

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.
I would have to agree, especially if it wasn't doing it before the tires...

no,no....I meant it'* coming from around the tire area instead of the engine compartment like Blue asked...(where'* my symbol, by the way, Blue?)

They're not winter tires...they are all season

I'm running 255/50 R16 on mine! You can see some pics here of the tires. The shop had to pound the welded lip back in the rear wheel wells and at full lock they just nick the frame gaurd in the fron tones. But the handleing improvement is just sweeet!

You might be able to squeeze the 235'* but I wouldn't recommend it.. the tires side wall is no longer sitting horizontally but angled inwards on the inner diameter.. which in turn.. if you go through a hard corner.. the sidewalls already angled will have more give, and thus you might actually loose more traction

They would, by chance, happen to be Goodyear Conquest tires
