What tyres would anyone recommend to reduce the noise. I notice the electric version has a standard walled tyre, the hybrid has a lower profile tyre Suggestions please.
Michelin is worth trusting, but unfortunately it’s tire model dependant. Their X-Ice, Defender and Pilot series are all extremely good tires for their uses. Primacy, unfortunately, are not their best tires at all. I would never buy primacy, I would only accept them as a tire that came as original equipment.I also have a noise issue from the Michelin Primacy 3 225/45/17 tyres that my Ioniq came with. One of the wheels is making from time to time and only on some type of surface a sound as if the wheel bearing has problems. And it is not the bearing. I think I have to change them for something else next year as the sound drives me mad especially in EV mode. I looked at the Primacy 4 225/45/17 XL and they have A rating for fuel consumption, A for wet braking and 68bd for noise. But I don't know if to trust Michelins after my experience, I have roughly 30000km with the original ones.
