The whine his is talking about is probably coming from the front of the car or at least it sounds like it. It's more than likely the tires. My RE92s used to do the same thing on my old wrx. The RE070s are a lot quieter at high speeds, but they have less of a all season tread pattern. I don't tend to keep the car at high speeds for long. But, i like to wind it out every now and then. Just to make sure she responds correctly. After, I'm done....I brake myself down to the limit. Btw, the RE92s made a whining drowning type noise. Sounds like a banshee is coming out of your tires. LOL...but, yeah. They're not safe at high speeds. Not saying the RE070s are any better...just less noise overall at that speed. Though for some reason...at normal highway speeds the 070s are making decent road noise.
