    just got a set of 19" rs4's to replace 18" rs6's. before put new rubber on them cos tyres barely legal, have put 2 alloys on front to make sure no buckles etc and run smooth. have had 19's on a vectra in past but dont remember them being so noisey on the road.
    1.8T, votex bodykit, 18" RS4's, tinted windows.
    scouser, but car was bought and paid for.

    Could be as simple as it being a different car and the amount of soundproofing it has, or have you changed the size of the side-wall on the tyre?

    that mechanic wants to but expensive tyres price of them. my 18s make quite a bit of road noise also, so sure he is right and thats all your noise is. i found the 19s were even worse but you get used to it. worth it bigger alloys look better so stick with them.
