The Causes of Road Noise

Road noise (the noise produced by the interaction of tires and road surface) is in many circumstances the dominant noise experienced by vehicle occupants. The requirements for producing quieter roads and tires need to be balanced with the need to ensure that safety is not compromised. For example, a very smooth road surface provides the quietest ride, but this would provide little friction and therefore would provide very poor braking performance. The origin and nature of the sound produced by road/tire interaction is extremely complex.
