The abs system is malfunctioning on that wheel. Usually due to a caliper going bad.

Correct wheel placement?


I`ve only seen 2 cars that require the tires to be installed in a particular spot. usually because the tire width was different from front to rear and would not allow the wheel to be turned to full left or right. also some tires are designed to work in a specificate location due to load and traction under certain conditions. these cars are an early Camaros(80s) berlanet and corvettes. so these tires you have were designed and made to work in these spots.

Why are tires that have flat spots from sitting over a year not safe to drive on?


Any imperfections or flat spots will be worked out after you drive a few miles to get some heat into them. Some tires even develop flat spots overnight. It's normal for pretty much all tires...Keep driving on them, may take 500 miles of easy driving...It may make you nuts listening to the noise until they round out after some driving...saailer

2005 RAV4 rear tire uneven wear


You need to have a four wheel alignment done. Keep in mind once the tires start to wear like you have they will continue to wear that way even after the align is done.

2004 avalanche..46k miles..was making a noise that sounded like something was warped ..abs would engage below 5 mph..took to repair shop and they replaced both front hubs..said the abs was fixed ..sensors...


Try rotating your tires from front to back. It may help with the noise. Get a front-end alignment which can also help with the noise by correcting a "rub" sound that originates from the 2 front tires fighting each other for control.

The place which replaced your bearings is probably correct. When you get bad bearings they do not always fail evenly across the 360 degree turning of the bearing race. If you imagine a donut with a flat spot representing your bearing- as the donut spins with the flat spot cause by a disintegrating roller, the tire is bolted to the donut. The tire is going to hit the pavement differently every rotation because of the play in the bearing is at that same spot.

This play will create small cups in the tire shape at the low spot transmitted by the bearing. When you replaced the bearing , the marks in your tire tread remained. These edges need to be worn off. Or some tire stores can Shave a tire, in an attempt to make it round again.

If you have a normal size spare, you can put the spare on the left front side of your vehicle and see if the noise goes away. If the rims are different on the spare, you can have everything remounted and pay for rebalancing and put the unused spare as a front tire. Then you know the spare is at least good as a spare, but noisy.

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.

i want you to feel all 4 tires, feel for lots of flat spots. feel all the way around them. they might have flat spots on them. this will cause this noise. you neer to rotate your tires at 3,000 miles front to back. this will stop them from cupping out. thats what the tire store calls it. have your tires checked for balance when you rotate them. your tire with flat spots will make a good spare tire. switch the bad one to your spare to see if the noise gets changes

How do I fix problem when I turn left?


the car must have the the weight of car on it to check for bad wheel hub but then you can only guess if there bad but it would be a good idea to prabably change hub, if light is coming on on dry pavement..check all wire connections to the hub first to make sure nothing is has loose connections. also have them put tires on balancer to check balance but also while there spinning what the tire for flat spots in theme make sure the look most dont they just balance but tires can have flat spots in the tread and still balance out on machine. its one of two hub or tires my guess would be one of the tires has flat spot in it or under weight the hub is unstable . i hope this helps

Spare tire location?


With the new 2008 models, the spare tire was moved from the rear of the van to a spot below the front seats. The lug for the tire winch is located under a round cover in the floor just in front of and between the two front seats. If you look under the van, you will see the black tire-shaped cover for the spare.
