Help With 2008 TT Tire Noise And Ride
I recently purchase a 2008 certified Audi TT (2.0 liter, front wheel drive). I have noticed that there is excessive tire noise (a whirring sound that is very noticeable at 10 mph and quite noisy at 60mph) a very jarring ride when going over interstate expansion joints (not to mention potholes and rough pavement).
The car has 23K miles on it and the tires are Pirelli P Zero Nero (18 245/40 M&S) - with a tread depth of 3/16 to 1/4".
The other two Audi TT's I've driven were both were quieter and more comfortable (although I did not get either up to 65 mph).
Any suggestions? . . . Quiet, softer tires? . . . Or? My wife is not terribly pleased with either the sound level or the effect on her back.
Outside of these two items we love the car.
