No problems here.
It was an XC40 FE D4 AWD Auto - Bursting Blue/Charcoal/20". On the road since March 9th. Sold on August 20th. It was Polestarred. :)

Have to say I'm impressed with the road noise on the 20's, a lot quieter than previous cars.

I'm on 19's too, find the road noise almost non existent, also had a demo car on 20's for a good few hours and found that really good too, maybe check your tyre pressures??

Yep, same here - 19's and very impressed at how quiet they are. My previous car (Golf GTE) was very noisy although the hybrid engine may have led to the tyre noise being more apparent.

Also, might be worth having the balancing checked on the tyres too if they're overly noisy??

Had a longer more varied journey on different surfaces today and was very happy.
Also very little wind noise at speed.

The brand of tyre is going to have more impact on tyre noise than wheel diameter. Volvo have several OEM relationships. Which tyres are you running?

Hi
After having a nightmare of an Touran I was happy to join the Volvo owner family. But I also feel the tyre/ road noise is irritating noticable. City driving is ok. But on country roads and highway its loud. Car is fitted with Continental Premium Contact 6 19' from factory. Feels like noise comes from the back of the car. Any ideas?
