I have 2002 honda civic with noise coming from rear sounds like a noisey wheel bearing have jacked up both sides and spun wheels with no sign of noise .


Check Tires for feather edge. Join your fingers together, move around the rear Tire from front to back and vice versa on both of the rear Tires and feel the smoothness. If the tread of the Tire resist the fingers in one direction and smooth on the other, then the Tires may be producing the abnormal noise.
Temporarily bring both the front Tires to the rear and rear Tires to the front on the same side, drive the car and watch the noise. If the noise begins to come from the front end, then the Tires are defective and need replacement. . If the noise still comes from the rear wheels then the rear wheel bearings need replacement.(You can also rotate the Tires in criss cross manner temporarily)
The bearings often vary noise with and without load. Be sure to troubleshoot the noise before spending money on costlier spares.

92 riviera rear tire wont rotate


Does it have rear drum or disk brakes. Remove the right rear tire. If you have drum brakes, the brake material may have separated and got wedged against the drum.

1997 cavalier, both rear tires wearing on the outside 1/2 of the tires. What would the probable culprit be? The car has 97k miles on it...


if you don`t rotate the tires this can cause abnormal tire wear.but with tire wear on the outer 1/2 of the tire indicates either the camber setting is off or you could have bad rear springs changing the ride height of the car causing the change in camber.to find out you would have to have a 4 wheel alignment done to check rear alignment readings.if the springs are worn then the ride height can be checked with a tape measure and compared to specs,if off then the springs should be changed along with the rear shocks.

Flat spots on tire


This could be one of three things , either you have an alignment issue , bad suspension parts or just the lack of tire rotation. If the flat spots are at an angle from outside edge to inside edge then the problem is with your rear struts. If the flat spots are either on the out side edge or inside edge then the you have an alignment issue. If the flat spot are consistent all around the tire then you have a tire balance issue or bad rear struts.

At 1500 miles the front end was in need of alignment and the outside edge of the front tires were wearing down excessively.We took to the dealer and they aligned it When I went to rotate the tires at 5500...


once a were pattern is worn in tire s unless you rotate tires to the rear they will keep wearing you should rotate your tires every oil change especially if you do alot of around town driving i am willing to bet you that good year lied to you about the alignment i am sure the dealer put it into spec the first time you just need to rotate them a little more often
