Road and/or Tire Noise

I hear road and/or tire noise on my 2016 435i Hardtop convertible. Will changing front strut insulators help? Or is there anything else to be done ?
Tks
Luc

+1 on the tyres. Swapping wheels front to back or left to right can be revealing.

You wouldnít be the first to mistake tyre noise for a bearing, suspension or driveline component.

Some tire brands/models get extremely loud as the tread wears. Other owners that have not had run-flat tires before also complain of the harsher ride & noise.

Itís not the tires, itís the piss poor sound insulation in the wheel wells.

Re, Road Noise

Tks for all the answers. The car is running on New Continental Run Flats 225/45/18

Also I am getting a good vibration at or around 60 to 70 Km per/hr ( 35 to 45 miles per/hr )
I dont beleive that it's a bad tire calibration. It starts at 58/60 km/h and stops at 70/72 km/h

Rotate the front tires/wheels to the back & see if anything changes. You could have a bent wheel - certainly not uncommon.
Road force balancing can do wonders for imbalances: https://www.hunter.com/find-equipment/

Vibrations

I beleive that if it was a bad rim, it would vibrate at all or at least other speeds than just between 60 and 70 clicks...
