Hi

My girlfrien bought an 06 ibiza 1.4. The proble is road noise or is it. The garage still reckons that it is the tyres. She has been given a curtesy car to try but the noise is still there. It seems to happen around 45 - 55 mph after 30-40miles. The resonance becomes quite painful. Is this a design fault or is it wheel bearings or ??? Any suggestions please. I feel bad because I persuaded her to buy one!

The road noise is quite bad on the Ibiza's - there's no soundproofing under the carpets and SEAT are putting larger and larger tyres on the car that's only going to compound the problem unfortunately.

What tyres have you got fitted to your one - they tend to swap tyre suppliers quite often

My car has a lot of tyre noise on the motorway. Would be good to compare different tyre types? I have Pirelli P6000 tyres, which were factory fitted. Has anyone changed from these tyres to a brand that is noticeably quieter?
