    Thanks for the reply... it sounds like a wheel bearing / hub assy. That is why I replaced the lh unit... that is what it sounded like.

    It is not a "pulsing" sound like a chopped up tire.... but I rotated them anyway.

    It is two wheel drive so no axle shaft up there or rear differential to deal with..... could it be the ABS sensor? Kinda doubt it...

    Sound stays the same when I kick it up in neutral. hmmmmmm

I have 2012 grand cherr every little bump u hit it has 20 in tires on it sounds terrible

If you are describing a Grand Cherokee, the tires are half flat at 20psi. This accounts for your road noise. Chances are the tires now have a pattern or groove from under inflation.

Do not know the specs for your tires, but I generally look at the maximum psi molded into the sidewall of the tire and subtract at least 4 psi to fill them.

If you go to the site or the site they have detailed descriptions of how tires are rated for Noise as one element.

Sometires have more noise than others. But irregular wear will make any tire noisier than normal. You also could have a problem in the bearings in the front hubs.

If the tires have not been rotated, do that and it might help.

I have 2005 grand Cherokee making noise from front! Sounds like tire noise but it did not change when I rotated tires. Noise is there when ever car is rolling, I tried letting it roll in neutral and the...

If the tires aren't cupped, feathered or chopped then most likely it is the wheel bearing. Though it may be tight it could be dry inside and not yet at the point where you will feel pay.

The rear end sounds like the bearing is going bad? like a tire with a bad cord.

jack up and remove wheels please use jack stands , rotate each wheel slowly and listen for noise at hubs or differential, maybe just an hub bearing, if axle bearing look for wet backing plate or grease around brakes . if axle bearing you have to get chiltons or haynes Manuel for truck and follow instructions

Im am rotating tires on a 94 jeep cherokee the

Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X" pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.

This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)

For more details about Jeep Cherokee, review the Service Manual.

Good luck.

Drive the car in a parking lot and make left and right hand turns.
If the noise goes away on either turn then the problem is a front hub bearing.
If the noise is still there, it could be possible front differential bearings.
