Hi everyone! For a few weeks I have noticed a whine when I am driving between 40 and 50 mph. I have a 2005 and it is completely stock. I can not hear it at any other speeds. Any ideas?

Can you be more specific? Can you isolate the noise from an area of your car? What are you doing in the speed range? Normal cruising, racing, etc? Is it really loud and annoying, or can you only hear it when it's really quiet out? Do you drive an auto or manual?

I have a 2005 touring Z and i've also noticed a whine/whizzing kind of noise. I get it from 60 MPH and up while cruising normally. Sounds like its coming from my tires and my cousin, who is a mechanic, also agrees that its coming from the tires. My guess is that your hearing the tires but thats just my guess.

It is at constant cruising speed. It seems to get louder when I start to slow down, but once I am below about 40 mph it stops. I have a manual tranny. It happens when I am in any gear. I can not tell if it is coming from the tires or not. It is possible.

I also get a high pitched whine at about 70mph+, it disappears upon acceleration and deceleration. It is only heard while maintaining constant speeds. Sounds like wind noise, but it is more high pitched than that.

Do you have the stock potenzas? I noticed it when I had my potenzas on and haven't heard it since I swapped in my pirellis. Then again it might have been related to feathering in my case. Drove me crazy though
