Yes, its all about wear rates and actual tyre sizes, wheel speeds etc. If one tyre is 2 mm smaller than another this one will turn faster than the rest causing, abs faults, traction control faults and transfer gear faults. Always change all four together and rotate the wheels to keep even tyre wear. I know this can be expensive but the transfer case and transmission are a far greater expense.

Rear end noise


Humming is usually caused by a wheel bearing. Try grabbing each tire and shaking it back and forth. If you hear any kind of clicking or movement, the bearing will need to be replaced.

My montana shakes/vibrates up and down when speed passed 75 mph. It is ok below 60 mph


Most likely a tire/wheel balance issue. The weights that are used to balance the tires can sometimes fall off. Generally how far out of balance it is determines when and how bad it will shake. Unfortunately this is not fixable without a tire balancing machine, has to got to a tire shop.

Were the tires rotated or replaced recently? Most major tire shops will check the balance for you at little or no charge if you take it back to the shop where the work was done.

You can also try to identify the problem tire by rotating the front and rear tires one side at a time. For example, if the vibration is coming from the front, swap the front and rear passenger side tires and drive the vehicle again. If the vibration moves to the back it's most likely the (now) passenger side rear tire that's out of balance. If the is no change, try the driver's side tires.

Hope this helps!

Tire noise on mercury mariner so so loud, is there a better tire than the continental contitrac 235x70?


Tires offer a number of trade-offs. Loud tires provide superior tread wear and a harsher ride, are loud. Soft tires provide a smooth ride, quiet operation and usually fewer miles.

Please go see your Goodyear or Firestone or Continental (or other major brand) tire professional and discuss your concerns with him or her to find the best tire for your application and driving style.

We just bought our 2011 Rogue a week ago. It has AWD. It only has about 300 miles on it and when it gets above 50 mph or so it shakes/vibrates. Any ideas on what the problem could be? I am planning to...


Tire balance most likely, I'm not a big fan of the work done on OEM tires. Also have them check the air in all the tires, even the spare. Most times it has 1/3rd of the recommended pressure.

Juddering when setting off as if on uneven road


When changing tires on any 4X4 vehicle, it is very important to exactly match tire diameter. If you have a 1/2" difference it can translate to many feet in rolling variation over even a short distance. This difference must be compensated for by the transfer case, which is not designed to do that. If you were to measure the installed diameter of several different brand tires, you will find that even those with the same size designations are not the same! Replace the other two tires with the same as those you bought...If you do not, you can cause severe damage to transfer case!

1995 nissan maxima fishtails just bought it used is this common?


Fishtailing on a front wheel drive car is not really a common problem, no matter what make it is. The Maxima is generally a good handling car and 1995 was the first year that they used the VG30DE engine which had plenty of power. These cars performed like they had V-8's. With a front wheel drive car, when they accelerate, the drive line is pulling the car. Where ever the front goes the back follows, when you put your foot into it. NOW, if you have a tire problem where they are no longer able to hold the road, the rear will slide all over the place. If this is the case, replace the tires. 1st check the tire pressures! If your car fishtailed on a slippery road where it had just started to rain and oil commonly floats to the surface of the road in the first few minutes that it rains, you need to drive with caution. I drive an old 1981 Mercedes 300 TD wagon. When it is wet, prior to my replacing my tires, the car would slip and slide all over the place in the rain. I recently replaced my tires with a new 80,000 mile tire Cooper came out with and the ride and handling are awesome. The car sticks whether it is wet or dry and the road noise has been cut in half. I had never realized how bad my tires were until I replaced them. My tires still had a legal amount of tread but had start to crack from age. SO, to sum it up: the car in general, is an excellent car with a reasonably reliable record and few weak areas. You have made a good choice for a car.

Sensor tire light


Your front left tire pressure sensor may be defective or broken. If you have had that tire changed recently, the technician may have inadvertently damaged it with the tire iron. It happened to me. I was quoted $250. to replace the sensor by the Toyota service department. I haven't found a way to disconnect the blinking light - so I let it blink.
