I have just purchased an attractive 14reg Mazda6.Only problem

Customer Question

I have just purchased an attractive 14reg Mazda6.Only problem is that I like a quiet journey and the car is subject to excessive road noise on common motorway surfaces.I have Toyo tyres which have a poor reputation in this respect,new on the front but probably 19000 on the rear.If I change them to a quieter brand(say Dunlop),will this solve the problem?
Is there anything else I can do,including major efforts at noise reduction?

Hello Terry,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,

hello Terry yes switching to a brand with smaller tyre tread blocks will usually help with road noiseContinental are particularly good in this respectalso check that the tyre pressures are correctly inflated too as if under inflated this greatly increases noisecheck that the front bumper and headlights are fitted correctly and are fully flush as if the car has had a knock at some point and misaligned panels this greatly increases wind noise also check that the undertray is still fitted for the same reason
