Hi everybody,

I just realized my high-pitch brake noise when approach stop sign has totally went away after installing my winter tires. Amazing! anyone knows the reason? I am afraid it may come back after I return back to my all-seasons. Thanks!

+1 on what kingdom sez..also, you probably pushed the dust guards back a bit while mounting the tires and stopped them from rubbing the rotors.

Assuming you still have enough pad material remaining, squeak/squeal is a harmonic vibration. Different weight tire/rim combo and different thread vibration is upsetting the squeaking... which is still occurring but at a frequency you can't hear.

And now you wonder why every mean dog tries to bite your tires?
