Wind noise in a Kia Sorento

I have a wind noise appearing to come from above my head when driving in my Kia Sorento, it only appeared since new tyres were fitted.

Most likely to be due to failed door seals. You can find out which by using thick masking tape to tape up all the doors (get in via the hatchback), then gradually removing the tape until you find out which seal has failed. Most likely to be a seal at the front of the front doors.
