Tire Roar

Hi guys got a 11 wrx bought it used and the dealer had new tires on it. Cheap tires never heard of the brand but they are the right size and everything. Tires might have 2000 mi on them. I am experiencing a loud tire roar especially when coming to a stop then it disapates with speed. All research i've done which is very little points to it's probably not the cheap tires. Anyone else had experience with this.

Rotate the tires they might be choppy. Cheaper tires will get choppy quicker what's the threadwear number?

Run your hand on the inside shoulder of the tires. Usually the fronts will be worse, but the symptoms you say certainly sound like a cupping or feathering problem for sure. If there's only 2k on them and they're cupped or feathered already you've def got some serious front end or alignment problems! Even a private label tire shouldn't be effected that fast. If they're smooth it could just be the fact you have a private label tire on there. Private labels aren't made for anything but to hold air and roll. Ride quality is far from their concern during manufacturing.
