Buick says that the new Verano needed some newly designed tires to give it a more polished ride. New tires may sound like a simple improvement, but tires can have a significant effect on how loud the car ride is and how noticeable the noise is in the passenger cabin.
General Motors reports, “For the Verano, we needed to ensure we provided ride comfort, while also balancing fuel economy and rolling resistance, and delivering an engaging driving experience.” The brand has opted to fix this problem by engineering new tires to use on Verano models.
Two tires from Continental Tire have been manufactured specifically for the Verano that have low rolling resistance to help aid fuel economy and allow for better handling. Redesigned, the tread pattern of the tire can help the wheel avoid high-frequency noise that comes from a tire making contact with the pavement. Making these changes to the tread should reduce cabin noise.
