Default New used Tires and wheels ALOT of noise why?

I got some used 17x7 with some Wanli 215/40/17 tires on the car and everything seems fine it fits so I went for a drive.

I get no wheel wobbles at any speed just occationaly wheel pulls on uneven surfaces and this is normal I think for low profile tires and wide wheels

My problem is that whn my car go above 30mph the front tire get real noisy. It make a ROOMROOMROOM noise. I can hear it even if I have all the windows up. I can also feel a little vibration through my clutch pedal which is weird cause my wheels are perfectly wabble free! I can hear if ONLY from the front wheel. When I speed it up to like 80-90mph the sound subsides and all is fine. It get loud in some paving and less in other.

What is causing this problem do you think? is it the used tires that need to wear down to my cars alignment or is it these new used wheels and tires is pulling away and my wheel bearing is making that noise(HOPE NOT) any idea?

There's a couple of reasons why tires make noise and the biggest is tread pattern. Noise is also very ellusive whereas what you think is coming from the front might be coming from all 4 wheels. "Cupping" from a bad alighment would also cause noise and not cause a wobble so inspect your tires very carefully for any uneven wear.

Agree (as usual) with Crewzin. When everyone used to have separate snow tires, it was well know that the snow tires would be noisier, due to the tread pattern.

I had some wanli 225/40/17 on all 4 wheels before and it was VERY VERY noisy at any speed

Now I have change to 224/45/17 Wanli in front and Yokotires 235/45/17 in the rear and the Wanli makes slightly less noise but same noise but the rear Yokos are quite.

I suspect the Wanlis are CRAP. I will switch them to the back tomorrow and see

I also notice that the ride got alot worst. I knwo handling is better but over all GOD damn I wish I never had them on.

I neverhad this much problem with other car having bigger wheels on but this PT is the worst

As previosly posted the wifes 03 Mags are shedding the inside chrome, and apparently it is causing major loss of air. Warrantly is up, and the best Chrysler could do is grind down the cheap chrome but said that probably wont solve the problem. He said a few Cruisers came back with the same problem.

Would anyone know if there are any 17 inch steel rims that I could put on her Cruiser??????????

I confirm that Wanli tires are crap.
I had wanli 225/40/18 on my chrome rings and there were too bad: noisy, too hard, bad handling under rainy conditions,they became brown, the only thing is there are cheaper...I replace with "Bridgestone Potenza" and I'm very satisfied with, smooth ride and silence.

"under rainy conditions,they became brown"

I think this phrase may be a bit lost in translation.
brown as in what comes from the back-end of a horse?

Bad handling in rainy conditions AND the colour of the tire is brown

Literally Brown? so maybe Wanli's really ARE made from merde?
