Tyre noise come from wheel alignment out and the tread pattern on the tyres . Have a wheel alignment done starting on the rear end first as it affects the front alignment.. Check CV joints and wheel bearings for serviceability and adjustment.

SOURCE: a flopping noise

I've had the wheel bearings go out 2x on my '01 .. and the noise starts out similar to a flopping noise. Its kind of hard to describe - but if it seems to be coming from just one side of the car - I'd have that checked. It's not too terribly expensive.

SOURCE: Noise from rear axle

You most likely have a bad wheel bearing. Jack the car up to the extent that the rear wheel is of the ground pull in and out on the top of the tire if you feel any free free play or loosness do not drive the vehicle untill you get it fixed. Check both sides as it can be dificult to determine wich side the noise is comeing from.

SOURCE: We just bought a 2008 PT Cruiser with brand new

it could be the type of tires. depending upon tread design an purpose of tire. ie mud and snow, high performance. i would ck to see if the tires are directional. if they are and someone unwittingly rotated the wrong it would do this. you should be able to tell by looking at the sidewall. there should be an arrow showing proper rotation.

The first thing to check on a rattling noise is if going over minor bumps in the road if that is when it makes noise is a sway bar link, they make a rattling noise. If you raise that wheel up you might also want to try and wobble the wheel to be sure it is not a tie rod end or ball joint. Typically I run into the sway bar links or the sway bar bushings making the noise. However ive even seen it be a rock sitting on the strut plate.

SOURCE: Spare tire impossible to drop when I had a flat.

All vehicles that have a tire under the body,
have to be removed and left at home or
put in the vehicle
You can not leave then out in the weather,
to rust away the mounting holes and not be
able to get down when needed.

Noise in driver tire

Given the age of your car, and you didn't state if it's a wrrrring noise or thumping noise(tire if speed related). test by driving at hiway speeds while listening to noise, veer to the right then to the left to see if noise is louder one way more then the other Note: before doing this make sure NO other cars are behind or in front or on either side of you. If noise is more pronounced by turning one way, chance are you more than likely need a "wheel bearing hub assembly". Have a mechanic verify before replacing, and DO NOT buy the 'cheapest bearing', or you'll replace it again in a year. part is around $115 at O'rielly's, most mechanics want $2-$400. labor to replace. I did my own, easy if ya got a hoist and right tools.

I have a 2009 corolla and have had repeated problems losing tire pressure in one specific tire. I have replaced the tire twice and it still is happening. I'm told there is nothing wrong with the tire. What...

Then the problem is the rim. If the rim is damaged enough it won't allow a good seal with the tire beading and it will leak. Such damage can occur in instances such as during a tire removal or installation, having the rim bent from hitting road hazards like potholes or driving over speed bumps too fast. The rim will have to be repaired or replaced.

What is the problem? Too sensitive? What speed does it occur? First apply? Every apply? Wet roads?

Cheap tires, cheap brakes, wrong tire size (not calibrated), contaminated brakes, faulty wheel speed sensor.

Most common problem is cheap rear brake pads.

1990 Lexus LS 400 Right Front Suspention Thud Noise

most probably a torn lower suspension arm rubber bush that would not show up if the car was on a 4 post hoist
there is a problem there as the noise would not be evident if there was nothing wrong
different tire pressures will give different noise when hit with a tire lever ( a trick used by truck drivers to check for flat/ under inflated tires
good tire solid sound
low pressure tire a dull sound

What is that noise

To be safe have a tire shop look at the tire, it could be a seperated cord inside the tire, they won't charge to look at it.

Whirring noise from the front of car as you drive.

I would first rule out the possibility of a "rough" tire making the noise. You can move the two front tires to the rear of the vehicle and see if that changes the noise any. If it does, you might have a worn tire that needs replacing or a tire that has worn unevenly and should be rotated and balanced more often....

Good luck..
