I've just bought my first Beemer, a 96 328i Coupe with 144000klms on the clock. The dealer replaced a worn rear tyre with a new Yokahama A539( to match the other rear tyre). After a trip to Sydney of about 1200klms the car has developed a droning noise from 60kph to 110kph, which increases in pitch as the speed increases. The noise appears to be coming from the new rear tyre. Has anyone else heard of problems like this with certain types of tyres.

Otherwise I'm very impressed with the car after my 2001 WRX. I bought it for the long trips I plan to do as the WRX was not the most comfortable on long trips.

It's Bimmer. Beemers are motorcycles :P . Yokohama makes a great tire, that sounds strange. I would take it back it where you bought it and ask them to check it out, as this is unusual.

The 328is is a great car, you will love it more in a year than you do now. Got any pics?

I know of Michelin tyres that decreases the rolling sound very good. Perhaps other tyre companies should have them too!

I buy tires for their performance.... who cares about noise... its the only part of the car that makes contact with the road... I would worry more about that then what sound it makes.... but if its just coming from one tyre... I'd get it looked at... and by the way...



P.S. (I tried to use both tires and tyre)..... everyone is represented...

i dunno how the other two tires are on the car, but if they are close to worn as well they could be making the noise, typically performance tires, because of the way they are made and what their purpose is they tend to make quite a bit of noise.
i have no experince with these tires so im not sure, but im willing to bet they are a hard tire, which would also cause lots of road noise.

Thanks to everyone for all the feedback. Down here in Australia the round black things that make contact with the road are called "tyres", but hey, I can live with the USA spelling.

The noise has turned out to be a rear wheel bearing, which is about to be replaced by the dealer.

This is a great forum with heaps of info I shall be refering to in the future
