Thumping, grinding noise comes from right front side


most likely a front hub [wheel bearing ]going bad but jack up front side that is causing problem and try to move tire in and out with hands at top and bottom of tire and listen and feel for noise or excess movement it to much movement remove tire an check the upper and lower ball joints as well as the shock/strut but check brakes grinding can also mean pads are metal to rotor but usually grinding and thumping is related to a bad hub

What is the cause of continual thumping (appears to be coming from back of car) and violently shaking?


Many times, rear tires that are out of round or severely cupped or feathered, or that are out of balance can create this type of issue. My first recommendation would be to have them and the wheels on the rear of the car inspected. There may not seem like there is much wrong visibly if you look at just the tread of the tires, but a good tire tech can spin them up and give you some solutions, and the inspection itself is inexpensive. Hope this helps.

My tire is making thumping noise


THUMPING TIRE: Check the tires for a Bubble, even new tires can have a Bubble. If you don't see a Bubble just slide your hand around on the sidewalls and tread feeling for a bubble...OR Take it back where you bought the new tires.

I have a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when I leave in the morning their is a vibration in the front tires that lasts about 10-20 seconds.It feels like the tires are skipping


If it's a vibration, it might be a brake pad staying in contact with the disk. Normally the pads push away when the car starts moving. (A normal condition called "runout") Try stopping your Jeep tonite by using only rear brakes. (hand brake) Don't step on the brake pedal at all. Then see if it does it in the morning. Don't step on the brake pedal in the morning till the test 20 sec's is over.

If the problem is a thump thump sound it's probably a tire flat spot from setting. Have the tires just been replaced? Could be a softer tirs material.

Strange noise in the in the front of my Honda accord 2005. It happens when I accelerate and take curve.


could be ball joint, wheel bearing, brakes anything splash-guard ? is it a grinding noise or a thumping noise or a squealing noise or thumping and any of the above together along with it or just a single one listed above this will better my thoughts what it may be //

however if you can raise the vehicle and support it for safety reasons ....try to move the tire from side to side and back and forth top and bottom to see how much play is present ,if nothing proceed and remove the tires and look for anything obvious 1st ..and use a drop light flashlight to better view everything that stands before you and as well hands on and see if anything appears loose or broken ...for starters

My 2001 saturn is making a thumping noise from the right front tire. It is not the tire. Thump.Thump.Thump, as the cars moves forward. there is no shaking, just thumping.


  1. Inspect your tire. Look for any bubbles or knots on the side of the tire. Look for any damage to the tread. A bubble or knot can mean that you hit a curb, pothole or another object on the road. Bubbles and knots can sometimes be repaired, but more often lead to the need for replacement of the tire.
  2. Think about what you were doing when you first noticed the tire noise. If you just hit a pothole or a curb, chances are you have a bubble on your tire and that it needs to be fixed or replaced. If you had recently spun out of control or had to make a forced turn quickly, you might have an alignment problem and the noise might not be a tire issue at all.
  3. Listen to the noise while you're driving. If it's a repeated thud on regular intervals, you likely have a severe knot problem on your tire. Take the car to a tire repair place as soon as possible. Tire knots may not appear serious at first but can be potentially dangerous.
If you have no others noise especially into turns (it would be a suspension problem, i.e., cv joints) then it is a tire issue.

Thumping noise in the front end


Inspect your tires look at the tread, observe the wear across the tread, inspect the inner and outer side walls, look for bubbles, look at the rim look for damage. The more info you get the better.

Tire thumping in all 4 wheel drive


Coming from the rear? I could see the noise coming from the front if your axels are bad. It seems weird cause the vehicle would make noises like that in normal driving because they dont change when you switch to 4 wd
