Re: excessive tire noise after rotating tires
My 2009 did that at the 15k rotation. The noise on mine, is from the cupping on the inside tread of the tires. After finding this, I see 1 is the worst. 2 have it a bit, and 1 doesn't have it much at all. Increasing the pressure, and rebalancing the front tires helped some. Now the worst cupped one is on the back again after 20k rotation. I can hear the noise still, but now it is from the rear and not as pronounced.
