2020 KIA Forte GT Manual
Reducing resonance on flat areas with CLD is a good start. Tires do make the biggest difference. I roll on summer tires and they are loud in the morning. I have to raise the volume to around 25 to listen to podcasts. When leaving for home, it is pretty quiet. I listen to podcasts at volume level 12. I have not hit up the inner fender underneath the car, yet. Getting the appropriate tires for ambient temperatures not only helps with noise, but also grip.Yeah it’s probably a ~6x a year trip to visit family. It gets really tiring like 6 or 7 hours into the 13 hour drive. Would certainly like to do something about it. Might look for some thicker mats. My factory ones are in surprisingly sad shape for only a year old. Driver one is starting to wear on the backside, and I accidentally spilled oil on one of the back ones and it messed it up (my fault - I’m still mad at myself for that one). I thought I saw a post on here about someone that did the stick-on panels and they said it helped a lot. I think it was @Hamster-GT ? Don’t really remember.
