How do you soundproof a car from road noise?
I recently moved. Now, I have to drive on busier roads to get to work and have noticed my car is super noisy. How do you soundproof a car from road noise?
A loud car on the road can be annoying, especially if you aren’t used to it! Luckily, there are a few things you can try to reduce the noise.
- Make sure you have the right tires.
- Add insulation to the doors.
- Replace the rubber seals.
- Foam sound deadener can work if applied in the correct, lesser thought of places like around mats and the trunk.
- Upgrade your car mats.
- Try vibration dampeners on the floor.
- Take your car into a maintenance shop to ensure the noise isn’t something more serious.
Additionally, the proper maintenance schedule can help reduce noise. Regular tire rotations and wheel alignments often make your car drive smoother, typically meaning you’ll hear less noise.
