    just had some new tyres fitted, and there seems to be a drone type noise coming from the front of the car, if with the car out of gear, or the clutched dipped at speed 60mph you can still hear it

    the tyres are bridgestone potenza 235/40 R18

    anyone else had anything like it,

    cheers

    You never know though! Reason I say is I had new tyres and it made the noise, I even changed a wheel bearing and the noise is still there....I drive slow, still there.....fast..still there!
    Had the Rs6's put on with different tyres that were on them......STILL there :banghead:

    Wasnt trying to scare you mate, just loking at possabilities but now you said the noise come after you fitted the tyres then it sounds like the tread pattern need a little wearing in maybe!
    Maybe I should have read your first post properly lol :keule:

    it could also be that the tracking/alignment is slightly out
