Question for those of you running Yokohamas

I have the Yokohamas on my truck, but in the past two thousand miles it has been getting very noisy in the cabin. There is a vibration in the front floor, mostly on the passenger side. To me, it seems like a wheel bearing going. The dealer seems to think it is just tire noise from "that type of tire."

Do any of you have this loud road/bearing noise?

Thanks

Re: Question for those of you running Yokohamas

I have Yokohama Advan ST's on the X5, very wide, amazing grip, but very loud and yes sound like a wheel bearing going/gone. So much so that I swapped out bearings at one point because I didn't want to admit tyre feathering could cause so much noise.

Re: Question for those of you running Yokohamas

Interesting, so the noise continued after swapping the bearing? I guess I may just need to make the radio louder. Thank you for your help!

Re: Question for those of you running Yokohamas

Still running thru the original Pirelli Scorpion Verde All-Seasons but my experience is the above. All these performance/all-season wide arse tires are basically the same...I had an alignment issue that caused light feathering on the fronts, loud as hell and was convinced both front wheel bearings were going. Had to say both because it was that rough bearing grinding sound and it would not change when I weighted either side in a turn. Dealer said, its the tires, I said I don't believe you (have a decent relationship with the mechanic) so he pulled the hubs, bearings perfect. Rotated the tires to the back...now my rear bearings are shot! lol..... got spoiled on smoothness and quiet with my Summit so it's a readjustment process for me....more power, more grins, more gas, more noise...LOVE IT MAN!

Re: Question for those of you running Yokohamas

Ivae had my Yokos on for 8-10K so far and they are still pretty quiet. No complaints. Only con is cornering now that I moved away from the stock run flats.

Thank you all for your input. The thing keeps getting louder. I wish I had a decent microphone so I could share the sound with you.

Re: Question for those of you running Yokohamas

I have to look at the tires and see. I didn't notice any, but the dealer said there are some signs of it on the inside of the tires.

The thing is that with some negative camber inherent with any performance oriented vehicle config means the tires are "set up" for disastrous fast inside wear when Toe moves in/out...nothing roaches a tire faster than neg camb and toe in/out together...an alignment every tire change and a serious eval of it every rotation for me.....

100% correct, on heavy SUV's especially where setup for 'performance' you have to expect feathering or excessive tyre wear on the inner edges. I've only covered 7000k's on the SRT but I'm already seeing a lot of inner wear and feathering. totally normal. You can have some of it dialed out but expect poor cornering performance if you do.

Re: Question for those of you running Yokohamas

I would like to think of myself as the tire expert when it comes to the JC SRT. I have had pirelli run flats, then yokohamas, then BFG KDWs, then Pirellis again, and now finally Nankangs. The KDWs got noisy very quickly, the yokohamas also got very noisy, like a bad wheel bearing. The Pirellis stay quiet the longest but in general wear fast than any other tire that I've tried (AND EXPENSIVE!!!). So far, i am most happy with the Nankangs. I purchased mine from Amazon for about $500 for the complete set of four and they have stayed very quiet. I rebalanced them after about 3,000 miles due to some noise and they quickly returned to their original sound level. I will agree with what was said above regarding alignment, i did take my jeep to a small tire shop and had them do an alignment. While it decidedly corners worse now, the wear on the tire is just so much more even.

Best,

Dotcom
