stock or after market wheels? does the noise sounds like a wobble or more like a growl from a dog. if its the latter its just your tread making the noise and most likely nothing to worry about. if its a wobbly sound that could be a mis-balanced tire or the wheel could have been put on funny (aftermarket wheels need a centering ring to mount right most people forget)

if its just at a certian speed it is a misbalenced tire a cheap fix for any tire shoppe:thumb:

did this start right after you got those new tires?

they are gsr blades, and it sounds like some thing is wobbleing in the back of the car and its starts to vibrate a little, also i notice that when i am going 6o(that is when all the noise is happening) and hit a curve to the left, the noise stops?:really?:and the i start going straight the noice starts again.

no, it was making the noise before i put the new tires.
that was the reason i changed the tires because they where no good no more, and tought that was why it was making the noise.

well bad news then (most likely) 9 out of 10 times you are looking at a bent wheel. just to be safe i would take the back wheels to a diff tire shop than you did previously. possibly try a place that has a top of the line dynamic balancing machine and see if they can balance the whweels out. but if they cannot do it then ask them if the wheel seems bent in any part of the out rim, if not the face is warped and you must get a new wheel.
