Quiet down Sant Fe tire road noise

Great improvement by spraying undercoating in the wheel wells.
Just remove the tires, take out the 8-10 plastic screw clips and remove the plastic inner fender liner.
Stuff some newspaper in the areas you do not want overspray, (springs, hoses, Struts etc) and Spray 1 can of rubberized undercoating in each wheel well, allow to dry for 1 hour or so and put it back together.
Cuts the road noise by 50% at least! Cost about 6 bucks a can, and about 30 minutes work,+1 hour waiting!
Very happy and quite easy!

Interesting suggestion on the undercoating. I will give it a try, but, ill add some 1/2" thick dense soundproofing insulation on top of the undercoating once its dry, before i put the plastic wheel well liner back on. Thanks for the tip.

Simple. It costs money and they probably felt the vehicle was quiet enough without it.
