Yoko Advan Neova AD08 noise - anyone with experience?

I just had a bunch of suspension work done on my '88 and replaced the tires in the process. I put a set of Yoko AD08's on it. I also got new shocks/struts, turbo tie rods, euro ride height, inner/outer CV boots, front/rear neatrix bushings, and alignment.

With the new tires, they start to make some pretty loud tread noise at 45, and then really resonate from 65-75. I mean, with the windows up, it sounds like I'm driving a train. I haven't tried anything past 75 on the highway due to VA's draconian speeding laws. However, I'm wondering if anyone has these tires and has experienced similar noise, or if I should start looking elsewhere. (Alignment, rear wheel bearings, CV's)?

If there's a chance that the alignment specs have anything to do with it, these are the alignment numbers:


Camber LF= -.1' RF= -.08' LR= -1.15 RR= -1.17
Caster LF= 6.12' RF= 5.57'
Toe LF= 0.06 RF= 0.06' LR= 0.1' RR= 0.1'
SAI LF= 10.54' LR= 11.07'

Rear Total Toe 0.2'
Rear Thrust Angle 0.0

In my experience these are the noisiest tires ever made

I have Toyo R888's. These tires make as much noise as off road tires. I would guess the noise in your case may be normal.

At this point, ~200 miles. Do you think that I can expect them to quiet down after a certain point?

I am on my 2nd set of AD08s. I can't say I have noticed hearing excessive tire noise compared to my other cars. That said, the 930 is just a noisier driving experience in general vs. the newer vehicles in the stable.

Correct, tires are generally at their quietest when new. Won't get any better as they wear.

could possibly be noisier until broken in

you will need to buy spendy tires where all factors are optimized

These were spendy tires.

Oh well - this means that I will need to spend more time on the track to burn through these

I had AD08's on my 81 SC. Maybe because I didn't have the windows up in the Fall and Spring, but I never noticed any excessive noise. What I did notice was razor sharp response, and fantastic grip. That having been said, I moved on to an 84 Carrera with Bridgestone RE-11s. They are not quite as responsive, but definitely ride better and stick like glue.
I would be happy to have either on my car.

I shoulda spent the extra money on RE-11's and used Fikse's with RA1's/R888 for the track.

*sigh*

Long update on this thread for anyone who searches for Yoko AD08's. After a decent alignment, they have quieted down and are actually quite usable on the street. They're still noisy, but nothing like the noise that I was experiencing when I posted first posted my question. I would consider buying these tires again.

I had A032's and A048's. So noisy you think your bearings must be shot.

As it turns out, my front bearings were shot.

I tightened them every weekend for a few months, and consistently found play after a few days...until I finally replaced the bearings to save the spindles. The AD08's are a little noisy, but I consider them a streetable summer tire by all means. They're squirley in cold weather, but there is no reason to fault a summer tire for this, they're *summer* tires. I consider the squirreliness to be added-fun.
