Tire Expert Advice

I've ordered new tires (Hankook V12) because my Michelin Pilots are pretty much done. What bothers me the most is they are REALLY REALLY loud, and exhibit a "throbbing" (wa-wa-wa) noise. I'm hoping its not the bearing but there is no side to side play with the tire off the ground. I haven't checked rear wheel for bearing play, but the noise sounds like its coming from the front.

Can an expert comment on any abnormal tire wear. They look OK to me, but I'm not sure if there is any alignment problem.

As long as your new tires are wearing evenly across the tread, then your alignment and tire pressures are fine.
