Over the past 4k miles (2-3 months), i have noticed loud tire noise from the rear. During the past 4k miles, the tires have been rotated (around 1.5-2k miles ago). Over the weekend i topped all 4 off with air, to equal 36 psi or so.

I dont want to point blame at the pirelli's just yet; does anyone have an idea what could be causing this noise? Unbalanced wheels? cold weather? etc

Tires = pirelli pzero nero 225/45-17, about 8 months old, approx 8-9k total accumulation.

Re: (Akash)

i think there might be some cupping on the outside edge of the rear tires due to the camber. I measured both rears, and the outside tread is
1-1.5mm less than the middle and inside.

Does this sound right, i would have assumed the inside tread would be fading quicker than the outside based on our camber?
