I have a 2018 GT Sport. Any advice on how to reduce road noise inside? At 60+ mph It is so noisy I can barely have a conversation. Unfortunately I am driving on rough SC highways, so that doesn’t help. I have Hankook Ventus S1 tires. Thanks.

The Hankook tires are straight up trash. That's a good place to start.
Do you have a manual or DCT? C&D said that the 6MT was noisy on the freeway. I have a 7DCT and it is not loud on road trips (even with the sport exhaust), so I assume the 1.6L is a bit buzzy at higher RPMs.

I have a DCT. I have a lot of tread left on those tires. I guess I’ll have to be patient. 😊 Thanks.

Is it road noise, or wind noise that we're talking here?

Wind noise in the cabin is definitely a thing at higher speeds on my N-Line.

Changing out the tires might be a good idea regardless. They are known to have sidewall cracking from manufacturing defects over time in addition to being noisy. I would have liked to have measured the difference in cabin noise just by changing the tires but it was noticeable by ear.

What tires do you have now? I'm looking at replacing/upgrading mine soon.
