To be safe have a tire shop look at the tire, it could be a seperated cord inside the tire, they won't charge to look at it.

2005 BMW X3 CLICKING NOISE


It sounds like you have a rock or something stuck in the tread of one of your tires. Take a look and see if you find anything, then dig it out with a key. If it looks like something punctured the tire (it could be a nail in the tire) don't take it out (the tire will deflate) , take it to a tire shop and get it fixed.

I have a ticking sound while driving as if a stone is stuck in my tire, i checked the tires and there's nothing stuck in them, any ideas what it could be?


If the noise is coming from the front it could be a wheel bearing. If you change lanes and the noise stops for a second or two thats a good indication.

Squeaking on 1999 toyota corolla


Throughout my experience with Toyota's I have found that several times the hubcaps have made some weird noises. Try removing your hubcaps and driving your vehicle. If the noise still persists please let me know and I can ask u some questions and try to help you with your problem.

Front grinding/rubbing sound when accelerating


if you slide under the truck and try moving the cv with your hands and there is any looseness in joint or noise the joint is indeed worn out, the cv joint if bad should not stop the truck from shifting into 4 wheel drive it could be stuck in 4wd and this would cause cv joints to break, if u have access to lift get all tires in air and try2 vs 4 drive and see if tires turn if not lift front tires off ground tires should turn freelyin 2wd, as u turn tires listen to wheel bearing and shaft noises for grinding clunking indicating bad parts, simple tricks that may help u find problems for cheap good luck!!

Noise coming from front of car


It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

Noise on my front passenger tire


This one really fires me up! First go back to Discount tire and "speak" to the manager. Tell him you want the actual problem fixed and that you want the cost of that repair subtracted from the cost of the tires since you didn't come in to buy tires in the first place. If he won't agree to that, DON'T pay them any more money to take pot-shots at fixing the problem. Take it to another shop but make sure to let him know that you'll be contacting his regeional manager, the BBB, and your local news papers consumer rip-off column writer. That said, it's very possible, depending on the miles on the vehical, that you may have a worn or bad ball joint or somehow something in the suspention has come loose, ie: pitman arm, control arm, shock, etc... The only way to know is to have a reputable professional inspect the front end.
