I have just bought a new mini cooper latest edition, July 2021. It suffers from road and tyre noise (changing the tyres made no difference). My 2013 mini is far quieter.

My wife and I found the noise so intolerable that we have sold it back to the main dealer after just a few weeks, replacing it with a 10 month old pre-facelift one which is quieter.

If you are interested, look at the YouTube film "carwow mini cooper s" 12 min 20 sec into the review.

do away with the run flats, run lower friction type tyres even better ie they call them eco tyres ie better mpg and last longer they say,, runflats are just nasty to drive on, noisy and no feel etc , they also heavy and effect the un-sprung spring and shock loads , think on newer cars that are produced to be lightweight for emissions laws etc the heavy suspension parts get more effected and also not so much weight in car to counter the hard tyres perhaps
