How can I reduce road noise in my car?

I would like to reduce road noise in my 2013 Toyota Verso Excel. Would changing the tyres /wheels help? The tyres currently fitted are 215/55 R17.

Happily you can get Michelin Cross Climates in 215/55 /R17. Don't overpressure them and you will enjoy a more compliant ride as well as the cold weather benefits of the tyres.
