Excessive road noise
New to the forum and Kia's.
We have just bought a Kia Rio 3 EcoDynamic.
We love the car and have just been on our first long run in the car.
The car drives well and is very quiet apart from excessive road noise. On some road surfaces it is great and on others it is very noisy. I've asked around and have been told it is the type of tyres fitted that is the problem.
It's fitted with Continental 'Run Flat' tyres.
Is this a common problem with this type of tyre?
Can anyone recommend a tyre that is less noisy than the Continental?
I have been searching the forum and people have been indicating that its the under floor sound insulation that is the problem but I am not convinced.
Any advice / ideas would be most welcome.
