Default New tires making sticky/slapping noise

Hey guys, just got two new front tires- Michelin pilot sport A/S 3's- they have about 160 miles on them now. Nothing was wrong until I was driving into a parking deck this afternoon and suddenly began hearing a sticky sounding noise, sort of like if you get something sticky on your shoe and walk on a laminate floor. I figured it may just be them being new, but I never heard it until now and I just drove 140 miles on them one way yesterday without hearing it at all. When I heard it today it was only below 10 mph in a parking lot and parking deck. My rears were just rotated, everything balanced and aligned, no vibration or rattling, just this weird sticking noise. Tire pressures were set at 36 front, 38 rear, none look visibly low, nothing in them either (I laid on the ground in the parking deck trying to feel over them... it was pleasant.)

New tire sound? Possibly just drove through something sticky (I scrubbed em and no change)? Something more to worry about? Just don't wanna drive off and suddenly a tire give up if its something I should be worrying about. Just wondering if anyone else has had this. Thanks!

You might have worn the tire label off and now are at the stickem underneath the label. Just a thought.

Most tech dont take the stickers off and let you drive them off.

Nah, didn't see any stickers on them and by the time I got hope from the tire shop they were pretty covered in dust (all old country roads) so the only moment even saw them black was the second they put them on and I got in the car. I watched the whole time they worked on it (because I have trust issues lol) but I'm 99.9% sure there weren't any stickers.

Not unusual. Remember to take it easy for a while until the mold release wears off of the tires.

That blows.....shouldnt be a slapping, more like a tick.

How big is the screw?

Did you buy the road hazard with them?

It was pretty big, inch and a half maybe... Craziest part was that they ended up yanking it out and it hadn't broken through the belt. It went in sideways and was laying across the tread of the tire and was squished down into the tread. They couldn't even plug it because there was nothing to plug. There's an indention in the tire now which bugs me, but they're michelin pilot sport a/s 3's I bought last fall (the rears) and have 8k miles on them and are down to a 3 on the tread scale. They're going to give me money towards new ones so I'll end up replacing them before they lose their warranty. Sorta wish I had gone with PSS' again but I do so much driving in rain or shine that I figure these fit it being a daily driver a bit better even though I prefer the PSS in terms of feel. Disappointed in the rears going out so quick but it's expected I guess. My PSS had 15k on them and we're almost 100% smooth when I finally got rid of them. Ugh. Hopefully the fronts hold up like they should. If I can get 20k out of them I'll be okay.
