Check your lug nuts that they are all tight!
You should always double check when you change are rotate tires. at least once the next week. Could also be a hubcap.

I have a 2005 hyundai elantra. Today i began to hear a ticking noise when driving. It sounds like its coming from tires. I just had it inspected and had left bearing replaced. The clicking happens whi

It could be something simple....but have the hub and bearings checked.....does the steering wheel vibrate when you drive? If so defiantly have those checked.....Sometimes it could be a nail in tire or a stone(that is the simple part)

Hearing a humming noise from the right front of mazda 3 2005 and its not the tire.i replaced both front tires

hub assembly is the word that comes to mind they can make as much noise as a bad tire the easy way to check it out is with a really good flash light and the ability to get under the the vehicle look in on the back side of the wheel where the axle goes thru look for tinny lil pieces of metal that's the reason for the really good flash light the metal will reflect the light off that's the give away for me

Oldsmobile Intrigue front end howl

Need more info...front end you say... A particular side? Is replaced tire the same as other 3 tires? hear it while driving, or braking, or both? Hear it more steering left or right or going around a corner?

Could be a front wheel/hub bearing is my only guess at this point. Howling or groaning could also mindicate a transmission problem.

2005 silverado 4x4 making a ticking noise when driving? Doesn't matter in 2 wheel or 4 wheel still does it from starting out until stopping.

The ticking may be caused by a torn or damaged front CV joint boot. Check each side of the axle assembly, right behind the tire for a damaged rubber boot. If the boot is damaged, you should see grease from the axle all over the front components.

Roaring noise in front wheels on 1999 Mercury Cougar, sounds like tires. I purchased a new set of tires and still have noise. Noise is while driving and turning left, quiet when turn right.

That description indicates wheel bearings, replace all 4 in the front end of your cougar.
I suspect that the right front bearings have failed in the STATIONARY race, at the top of the bearing.

Noise in the front end when I reach 30-40kms an hr and continues while driving. Does'nt make this noise while idling or going under 30 kms an hour. Sounds like a boat with a motor in the water or like it...

Sounds like one of your wheel bearing in the front are bad..Jack the front up and spin each tire and you'll find the problem.Have a great day..

Yes this is Necessary. But, I would not let it go! If not repaired the Ball joint could come loose at a later time and Leave you Struggling to keep it out of the Ditches. I would replace the Shocks on the Front also. a Very Bad Shock could Cause Loss of Control.

Mazda 3 2004 front end struts shot

front end problems are not very uncommon becuse of the way we drive and where we drive, the front struts take quite a beating on the road thus giving us all the smooth comfortable painless noise less ride !!.

today the actual labor rate is soring and that is the reason for your big bills yet a reasonable price i would pay would be around $90 per side and the part will be around 200 for both front struts thus for a total of $400 for the front look into deals given by most auto speciality shops such as goodyear or pep boys but always ask for them to return your old parts to you this will be a good price around $400 - 450. for the front.

the noise you hear while you turn either to left or to the right while you are driving is bad front wheel bearings see if these are servicable bearings and if they are they can be cleaned and repacked with grease if they are sealed bearings then the bearings have to be replaced.
