Tire noise, new tires.

My PS2s seem to get louder every day. The front have plenty of tread but they are loud. Its like a whoomp, whoomp, whoomp sound. Anybody else had this issue?

Getting Hankooks installed by WSTO Friday.

Anybody have experience with those? Like?

Nope, I have PS2 also and they do not make any noise. I think that your tires are coped (spelling) on the inside threads and that is the noise that you are hearing. Kind of like a big truck with mud tires sound, right? You need to check your tires for uneven thread wear and re-balancing might be an issue. But when you hear this noise, it is pretty much to late to fix. That is why I always keep my tires checked for balancing every so often, since it is free for me.

i'm sure you are right. By rears are almost to the wear indictor anyway so new tires it is!

Thanks for the info.

PS2s get really loud when they are worn. If you are down to the bars, not surprising you are hearing a lot of tire noise.

Mine have been pretty noisy since day 1. And noticed they got a lot louder on my last trip, and I'm maybe at 1/4 wear . Can't wait to get them out.

You must be really sensitive to tire noise since the PS2's are unarguably one of the quietest UHP tires out there!
