Tire noise reduction was evaluated with acoustically designed exterior wheel arch liners. The wheel liners were made with a fiber blend selected to meet acoustical requirements, process demands, and durability challenges. Fiber liners were installed in a vehicle and noise level measurements were made under a range of operating conditions. The results show the reduction in tire noise that can be achieved at the source and in the vehicle. A critical part of this evaluation was a rapid analysis technique to select metrics that correlated with subjective assessments. The analysis techniques also helped quantify the improvements over a baseline condition.
