    I just purchased a new Tacoma (Access Cab, TRD Sport, V6, Auto). I owned a Tundra since 2001 and liked it very much. I upgraded to the Taco for new technology and better gas mileage.
    I'm hearing a high frequency noise from the rear of the truck which I'm relating to the tires because it changes with different road surfaces and different speeds. The tires are Bridgestone Duelers which are suppose to be relatively quiet. I've had it back to the dealer twice and they couldn't find anything mechanical wrong and said that was just the sound these trucks make. There's no vibration, just a high pitched tire sound.
    I'm wondering if the composite bed could be amplifying the otherwise quieter road sounds. My Tundra (steel bed and bedliner) was very quiet.
    Does anyone have an opinion or have experience with this type of noise. I don't hear any noise from the front tires. Are Tacomas just noisy in the rear? Will different tires help or maybe a bed cover?
    Thanks, Rick
