    I've got Michelin Pilots on the new motor, not Pilots sports but something like 'Ecsta'.

    I have only done 350 miles but have noticed a subtle roar thats speed related and appears to be coming from the rear near side tyre.

    Nothing obvious on inspection so wondered if just a trait of this Tyre design ?

    Cheers, Spin

    If it's only coming from one tyre could it be a defected tyre? Are they balanced correctly??
    They deffo aren't run flats, but are extra load tyres so have stronger sidewalls.
    Maybe a word with your dealer and they will simply replace it - easy thing for them to organise I'd guess.

    If you have Michelin Pilot Exalto

    Look so they are mounted in the right direction

    just a thought
