Hello everyone, newbie here.

I collected my brand new 308 1.2 130 Allure last week. Previously I had a 2015 308 1.2 130 Sportium with the 16" Diamond Wheels.

Since driving the Allure with the larger 17" wheels with 245 45 17" wheels, I have noticed there is a lot of tyre/droning noise, most noticeable on poorer road surfaces. I can't see it being a mechanical issue as the noise is only bad on poor surfaces (most of the UK roads then)

Has anyone else noticed this? I want to drive another 308 with the same wheels just to see what it is like. The Sportium was much quieter but it had smaller wheels.

Apart from this I am very pleased with it.

Thank you in advance!

Well I was thinking how much quieter my Allure is than the previous 308 SW (2010). Mine has 16 inch wheels.

What type of tyre are we talking about?

How worn are your tyres as they do get noisy as they get to 3mm. When I've changed to new tyres its a much nicer ride for some time. I tend to rotate the wheels back to front.

It's a brand new car with 300 miles. You are right though about tyres being noisier when worn.

You should be able to look up the tyres you have to find the noise rating. Low profile tyres usually require a higher pressure, that doesn't help.

Stock EfficientGrip are a quite noisy. A far more then Conti winter TS860 I have. Dunlop BluResponse are much quieter, I had those on my Scenic.

I've had my 308 for a month and am quite surprised by the level of tyre noise. It rides on 19" wheels and the fronts have only just over 3mm of tread, but even so, a bit more sound insulation would not have gone a miss! To be fair, like the OP, on really good road surfaces, its not too bad, but on poor surfaces it's a bit too much.

Mines like a muted roar that seems to resonate from the floor.

On the contrary , I just put Goodyear Efficient grip tyres on the front and they are a lot more quieter the original Continentals that were on there and a much better tyre at that .

New tyres have a label stuck on which gives you the noise rating as well as economy and wet grip rating.
