Eibach and New Tires Install - Noise?

So yesterday I installed my new Eibach springs and 19' Volk rims with new AD08 tires on them (265 front/295 rear). My old tires were stock (50% tread) with the OEM 18's. Everything seemed to go in right and the car drives straight with no wobble or anything. The one thing that I am noticing is a strange medium pitched "whirring sound" that is not constant, and the pitch goes up and down randomly. The odd thing is that is seems to be louder or softer dependent on the type of road I am drinving on. If I put the car in neutral and coast at the relative same speed it is still there. I want to think it is the tires as I have more rubber on the road now, but it is pretty loud and I never never heard tires "whir" that high of a pitch before. I had a Jeep for many years with 33's and am familiar with that sound. It does not sound like rubbing becuase bumps don't make is better or worse. I have researched alot on the forums here and know that an alignment is in the future, I just wanted to let the springs settle a little before I bring it in, but I don't want to drive it if there is something really wrong. I know this is a tough one, but any suggestions would be really appreciated !?!?

I'm almost positive (99% sure) it's the tires. Don't worry about it.

High performance summer tires tend to be noisy for example my NT05s were pretty noisy.

It sounds like your asking if the noise or whirling noise is coming from the springs or tires. I think that's your concern? It's the tires. Every tire's different some make more noises than others depending on the brand and seasonality of the tire.

Yes yes, just needed some reassurance i guess. I think this weekend just to be 100%, I am going to put the old rims/tires back on and drive it to eliminate that it is the springs. Thanks for the input guys

DeepSea- Did you ever confirm that this was your tires? am noticing the same whirring when coasting. It's harder to tell under acceleration cause it's too loud, but I am hoping what I'm hearing is the same thing as you.

AD08's are loud. That's one of the compromises of the tire. Grip is great but they are loud. I ran them for around 5000 miles and noticed the sound when I put them on and took them off...

I have AD08s on Eibachs just as OP, but 265/285. I think I have the same whirring noise. I notice it most in 3rd gear around 3-4k RPM coming to a stop. I'll record vids when I get the chance.
