Reducing road noise on Nissan Juke

I own Nissan Juke 1.6DiG-T and I love it. But the cabin noise on the motorway is too high. Do you think a sound proofing kit will help?

More likely to be the tyres than the car body, so a soundproofing kit won't help. If it's on 17-inch rims, swapping the tyres to 205/55 R17 or 215/55 R17 Michelin Cross Climates will help enormously, as they did with my Honda HR-V. If it's on 225/45 R18 tyres then you need to swap wheels and tyres to 17s.

My nearly three-year-old Vauxhall Astra seems noisy. The noise appears to be coming from the rear and varies depending on speed and road surface. Could the reason be the tyres or wheel bearings?
