Sound deadening

I got an '01 focus zx3 and my tires aren't the greatest atm in terms of sound and I took a look in my back trunk (which is stripped) there's 0 sound deadening material and it bugs the shit out of me on the highway. Wondering what you guys recommend to reduce rear wheel noise. I swear it's louder then having my ear next to my borla exhaust.

I prefer cost over quality. Although I'd really really like to get a DECENT material but under... say $150 That could do doors and back trunk/wells. It's a 2dr btw.

My whole trunk is Dynamat and all four doors and hatch. I did this for keeping my audio in and keeping road noise out. It has added I'd say about 70 pounds of weight, so if that's not good there is another company that makes something similar just thinner and cheaper. I don't recall the name. Dynamat gets the job done for sure but it isn't cheap.

Roof flashing from your local hardware store. Cheap, and effective.

"Peel n Seal" from Lowe's is hard to beat for the money.

Dynamat is great and all, and I've used it in the past but it's pricey.

But for $150, I'd be looking at a pair of new tires instead.
