SOURCE: Humming noise

check your tire tread, it may be worn in a choppy pattern and causing the noise. if your tires are smooth, then you have a wheel bearing problem

SOURCE: road noise from the right rear tire. The tire is

Without being there to actually hear the noise its hard to say. Make sure your lug nuts are torqued to 90 ft lbs. This noise just started when you put on a new tire? Yes a CV joint can give you road noise.

SOURCE: Moaning noise reversing while turning wheel to left

The moan is caused by the brakes and the vibration is due to a defective part on the front end a tie rod end or drag link. If you want more information I would be glad to assist but have to run to work so post here and I will give it a shot tonight when I get home.

SOURCE: Just had the tires rotated and balanced. Car

Could be a broken belt in a tire but the shop that balanced the wheels should have seen that, Otherwise, it's likely that you have a bad hub bearing (front or rear...you need to listen and determine where the noise comes from) or a C/V joint going bad (usually a boot will be torn or split if that is the case) One note though...hub bearings are built very well and don't get loose 'till the very end. don't rely on shaking the tire to test them. If the noise is there, it's bad.
Good luck!

2009 Honda CR-V high road noise


This could be multiple issues. Condition of tires, shocks (struts), tire pressure, tire balance, alignment, and some other minor issues.
How is the ride? If it is good and takes bumps well, it is probably not shocks/struts. Are you getting any vibration through the steering? This points to tires. Is it noisier during a powered turn? That could be CV joints.
I could consider taking it somewhere that would check things out and give you a free quote towards repairs necessary. That will help you rule out a considerable amount of potentials.

I believe it's a tire noise. It was making a noise and so I had the tires rotated. Different road surfaces the louder the noise. Going slow I really can' hear it. Since the tires have been rotated now...


Have the hubs inspected and the tires balanced. The wheel/tire assembly out of balance will cause the over 60 mph wobble/ steering wheel shake or drone. When did this occur or has it been going on for a while now?

On my 2002 camery i have a high speed vibration that seems from the front end both wheel and body. (very slight) it comes and goes and is not always there. all brand new tires


Hello.

I have observed this same issue many times.

What I would suggest is that you return the vehicle to where they installed the tires, and have them perform a 'road force balance' on all 4 tires. If your facility cannot perform this type of balancing, I would suggest that you find a tire shop that can do this type of balancing.

The road force balance procedure is the best way to ensure that no tire-related vibrations can occur.

We hope that this helps you out.

Vibration when I'm going at high speeds


you might want to have tires checked and see if 1) the balance is good on the tires. 2) the rims are not bent. 3) the tires are in good shape and dont have a busted belt internally in the tire.

also might want to check out the wheel bearings. the tires is most likely your issue. hope that helps.

Vibration


It sounds like a possible bad front wheel bearing they will make like a humming or growling noise.The pull could be air pressure a little lower in the right front tire than the left front check the air in all tires and if pull is still there take the left front put it on the right front and put the right front tire on the left front.Sometimes tires get what they call radial pull and that will fix it or make it go the other way if it goes the other way either get new tires or put the back tires on the front of the vehicle and put the front tires on the back.

New tires


Typically new tires reduce road noise. It can also greatly depend on what type of tire you purchased. Head to www.tirerack.com and search for the tire you purchased and see if the reviewers attribute it to added road noise.

The installer also could have incorrectly balanced them, which could also add to noise and should be corrected as promptly as possible.
