Road noise on a Hyundai - how to reduce it?

The only problem I have with my Hyundai i30 auto is the level of road noise. You often advise lowering the pressure in the tyres will this help in this case?

Assuming it's on 15-inch or 16-inch wheels, try reducing the pressures to 30PSI (cold) all round. No help, switch to Goodyear Excellence or Michelin Cross Climate. If it's on 17-inch wheels, not so much you can do apart from switch to 15-inch or 16-inch wheels and tyres.
