First drive in the wet and a very distracting noise from within all wheel arches. After getting it is the water noise, and that when there is deeper water laying on road, there is more noise, I then check the wheel arches. The arches are lined with a synthetic material like a carpeted cardboard, it could be this that makes the noise. It could be tyres that make the noise when loaded with excess water. Who has the answer and who has relined the wheel arches.
