My SDV8 with 22" wheels made a real droning din. Main dealer did not seem to think it was unusual! Fitted my 20" wheels as a test and normality returned.

However, it depended on the road surface and speed. Does not really sound like the same problem you have to me.

Road noise from the Conti 22s was an issue bak on early cars hence them producing the Conti silent series...

As Nick says, does not sound like your issue though sir... Thumbs Up

Mmm, interesting, i went out with the service manager at another dealer today and his instant response was that it sounded very much like tire noise as he has heard it on the RR Sport with 22" wheels.

We took a RRS out with 22's and sure enough, they do seem to produce a very similar droning although onky at higher speeds.

I'm in a dilema now, do I push for the wheels to be swapped for 21" and lose the fantasic look (the wife loves them) or do I keep the 22" and buy a pair of ear defenders...

As the service manager says, it is the kind of noise that many people woiuldnt pick up, fair point, I do have very sensitive hearing.

can I de-tune my ears from the sound?

My only concern, still, is that on the landrover site, it says that the 22" wheels can be noisy on "certain road surfaces" and the noise I get is on ALL road surfaces!

Now... where is that number for the BMW dealer...

My view is 20"s don't look so good but give a great drive but 22" look ace but don't give such a quality drive. For me the answer is a nice set of 21"s as for me the car is all about the ride quality and that "feeling ".

The only thing to do is be cheeky and ask to try the 21" on your car and then if noise is no longer there buy them!
I,m amazed its that bad though.

Alternatively you will tune out the noise in about 6 months. A bit like living next to the airport runway. Is there a cheaper deal to be done getting Conti-silent tyres swapped onto your wheels? 2015 5.0 AB Indus

Funnily enough, they are the conti silent tires..... Big Cry

To make matters worse, it has just come up with a service reminder!!! the car is only 4 months old with circa 3000 miles on the clock!!! Doh..

Phoned the dealer on Monday to complain, they said they would talk to the sales team??!! and would call me back... nothing... called again yesterday, they said they would call me back... nothing...

I am starting to get a little perturbed... I am also waiting for a call from LR Customer services for an update on the whole noise thing so may mention the "silence of the Dealers" to them!

Grrrr
