I just got my 2006 zx3 and I've noticed the road noise is incredible, I can hear everything. I would like exhaust, but the last time I had pipes I couldn't drive more than 30 min without going temporarily deaf. How is the interior cruising drone for the hatch?

I tried putting some dynamat down to help the road noise, anyone else try getting rid of it?

Tires over inflated?

My SES is very quiet. I noticed noise in an S that I test drove[confused]

I have a 2006 ZX3 and yes there is road noise on some roads. I think that it might be the tire compound. It is only on the asphalt that is very worn or groved. [driving]

What tires are you running? I think that may also have something to do with it (Ford uses different tires depending if its a 15" or 16" wheel)
