Is it normal when your tires make a loud humming sound while driving

i just got some new tires mounted on my 17 wheels about a week now
the tires are 225/45/17, every time i drive, slow or fast, the sound keeps coming

i wanted to know if this was normal, or b/c its brand new tires, and it would slowly go away as it ware out

Is your car lowered at all? Only reason I ask is that if you have done a lot of aggressive driving with bad camber settings you could have worn the tires irregulary already.

+1 for brand of tires.

Yeah, we do need to know what tires. Different tires have different noise ratings. For instance, bf-goodrich t/a kdw's are really noisy on the highway

If you're running the OEM 17's why did you go wider?

i think it would be because all the new tread on there...i mean if you hear trucks with like deep tread you can always hear a humming noise inside and outside of the vehicle but thats jus what i think...

If you mean the speed you are driving doesn't matter, then it might be the wheel bearing is failing....

Yup~~if the loud hum can almost surpass the sound of your music~~~then go check your wheel bearing soon. There's a recall on ABS o-ring that's relate to this problem.....

Could be those crappy Wanli tires or the wheel bearings. Do you have another set of wheels/tires you could temporarily swap to see if the sound goes away? Or maybe swap on a buddy's set and do a quick test. If the sound doesn't go away it's most likely the bearings.
