Wind noise

Anticipating a substantial road trip I really wanted to eliminate or greatly reduce the wind noise that occurs at highway speeds. Door weather stripping of course helped but did not eliminate the noise. It's especially annoying when driving in a strong cross wind and in Oklahoma that is almost all the time when driving east or west. I discovered that the noise was coming from the felt seal around the window channel. I sealed it with masking tape and the difference was amazing. I can listen to the stereo without damaging my hearing and conversations in the cab are comfortable. Not real pretty but Mission accomplished.

If anyone ask about the tape, just tell them you're in scientific test mode. If they're passengers and complain about the test tape or remaining noise, them duck tape strategically placed will do wonders.

I was stationed in Oklahoma for a year. I know what your are talking about. A counterpoint. I had a new rental car and was driving across Colorado. One of those strong cross winds came at that new car and all the door and window seals vibrated (oscillated). It's a spooky sound and it happens suddenly.

I have no idea if this will work but maybe wind deflectors?
