Your car is 20 years old any number of poor maintenance issues could have led up to it. However, the most common reason for loosing a wheel while driving is over-tightening rusty bolts. Pretty common when people don't use a torque wrench on bolts that have been corroded by years of driving in salt. The force can snap the bolts and send the wheel flying.

it would not hurt to check rear tire wear due to misalignment
cupped tires will cause a faulty bearing type noise or humming.

SOURCE: Loud roaring noise in front, steering wheel has vibration, replaced tires didn't help.

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly

While changing the left front tire, my car fell off the jack and now there is a loud grinding noise coming from that tire. What could that noise be?


next time use jack stands. very bad using only a jack for anything.
take it to a mech, and get it fixed , you busted the brakes.
its dangerous to drive too.
if DIY guy, with tools, then you can do this.
spin the rotor (use jack stands and not get killed)
does the rotor wobble , bingo , new rotor time
is it making noise, bingo you bent the backing place, rebend it back.

I would check your front tires for any defects if there is none noticeable I would get a front end alignment. Most of the time you can tell if you need a alignment if your car pulls to either the right or left while driving. Hope this helps.

Yes your car has outer tie rod ends.The steel on steel noise could be the metal plate behind your brake rotor could have got bent a little and is rubbing on the brake rotor.

Tire tread pattern plays a big part when it comes to road noise.

This tread pattern would be a loud tire.

Maxima - terrible vibrations in low speed


A bad tire, a loose wheel, a loose tie rod end, a bent rim, (tire balance at higher speeds), a piece of rust or whatever caught between the rim and brake rotor, or between the brake rotor and hub. Have you done anything to it prior to this starting?

I had this issue and it was one of my winter tires about to blow out, showing signs of weakness.. hopefully this helps!
