Road noise from new Michelin Tires.
We purchased a new set (4) of Michelin LTX MS for our 2011 Honda Pilot EX-L to replace the Goodyear Fortera that originally came on the vehicle. Right after purchasing we thought they were a little loud but not bad as my wife does mostly in town driving. this weekend we were on the interstate and the road noise was so loud we could not carry on a normal conversation. I was traveling between 75-80 miles per hour. The Pilot has about 45,000 miles on it and the tires now have about 1600 miles and they have gotten worse not better. Do I have a bad set or will we have to live we these for the life of the tire?
Hondas don't have a reputation for being the quietest cars but I'd go back to the store where you got these and ask them to check them out. Assuming the tires are okay, maybe they'll swap them out. Otherwise you may want to get in touch with Michelin and gripe. Maybe they've changed the tread compound or something.
Glad the tires are not the issue and even happier that the warranty took care of the bearings. Plan on having this car a long time.
