it can be normal.....specially if its the first time you are riding on this low a profile. low pro tires will generally pickup more road noise as compared to a higher meaty profile tires.

i noticed something similar when i switched from a 65 profile to a 45 profile.

Depending on the tread pattern and trear compound of the tires, some are quieter then others. A high performance tire designed for a sports car will probably be much louder then an all season tire desigend for a luxury car. A knobby winter tire is louder then a summer tire for example.

glad I came by to witness this burn

yeah if you got cheapo tires, it's called road noise... or perhaps your tire guy mounted directional tires *** backwards.
