I'm curious to know if any other TM3 members have had noise problems with their older Pirelli Winter Carving Edge tires. They were sold as a wheel/tire package with many new 2010 M3's. I got them with my GS Sport and despite having better than 40% tread life, they're slightly cupped and noisy as hell.
2 mechanics have confirmed that it's tire noise as opposed to a wheel bearing, brakes, suspension... the usual suspects. Alignment is straight as an arrow, and car is not lowered. Seriously, the noise is so bad that I may have to replace the tires despite the fact that they still work great in the snow and have a lot of life on them.
And yes, I've tried turning up the radio. But the flapping, droning sound is so bad it's causing ear pain going across the 401.
Is it just mine?
