Archived from groups: alt>autos>honda (more info?)

Greetings,

Being a long term multi-Honda owner, I talked my father-in-law into
buying a 2001 Accord LX instead of another Volvo. Well, he's hard of
hearing, and the road noise coming from the OEM tires through the wheel
wells/rear seat is driving him, and by extension me, nuts. Anybody got
a recommendation for a soft-compound, quiet-running road tire? Anybody
found another fix for the road noise in this car?

Thanks,

Pirelli 6000, iirc.

How about that sound deadening mat (Dynamat) the stereo guys use,
applied to the rear wheel wells and floorpan under the rear seat?

Depending on the mileage, the tires could be worn.

I put Goodyear Regatta 2's on my '93 Accord a few months ago, and so far I
have been very pleased with them. They are quiet, smooth riding, and have
good wet weather traction. It's not a high performance tire, but the car
does feel more stable than it did with the Uniroyals it had previously.

Just an FYI. I've replaced both rear wheel bearings on my '99 Accord
EX already (by 100K miles - first right, six months later, the left).
As far as good tires, I like the Bridgestone Turanza's.

go to <a rel="nofollow" style='text-decoration: none;' href="http://www.tirerack.com" target="_blank">www.tirerack.com</a> and put inyour car/year/tire size. You will pull up
all the tires that are spec'd for your car. Do some research and come up
with the quietest tires for the prie range you are interested in.

Is it the coupe? Coupes are louder in general.

No, it's the 4-door. I was skeptical when I was first informed of the
problem over the phone. I took a ride with him and I have to agree that
there's a tremendous amount of tire noise coming through the rear seat
and wheel well. He's just about to replace the OEMs and is asking for
advice. Unfortunately, most tire specs tell you all you want to know
about mileage and wet/dry traction, and very little about noise.

Agreed - go to tirerack.com - there's a Road Noise level selection in there
too when you search for appropriate tires. Good luck.

If you do this option , use brownbread, its a lot cheaper and is just as
good. I did my whole interior of my 00 accord in this stuff.

I replaced the Michelins on my 01 Accord with Cooper Lifeliner "H" rated,
they perform as well as the Michelins and were far less expensive, they keep
the manners of the car about the same, which is what I wanted.
