Some experiences I have had.
If you are lucky I have had rocks get in the tire tread and it would make noise while going down the road.
You may be able to jack up and spin wheel and see is you have the rough noise of a wheel bearing.

2008 Equinox has excessive road noise between 45 & 55 mph. Loud in general but really loud at speed.


Road noise is usually related to your tires. I would go to a tire shop and have them check it out. If your alignment and tire condition in general are good it might be the stiffness or aggressiveness of the tread.

2002 aurora, ticking/buzzing noise from front of car. louder with increased vehicle speed, but not affected by engine rpm. checked brakes, calipers, pads, tires, all look good. transaxle fluid level...


so it has some to do with rotation. you can jack one front wheel up, set parking brakes, start the car and put in drive. which ever side make noise, that's the one you need to inspect cv-axle, wheel bearing, ect.
check any thing that turns with the wheel

Whirring, rotational type noise around 40 rpm


More than likely it is a wheel bearing, while driving and no other cars around, swerve the car back and forth and listen for the noise to increase. Usually which ever way you turned and the noise became louder, that is the side the bad bearing is on. Then you have to determind front or rear. While being a Technician, I have the benefit of raising the car on a lift and listening to the wheel bearings with a stethescope while the wheels are spinning to determind the bad bearing.

My front end makes a loud humming noise. At low speeds, I hear a humming noise and at high-speeds I can hear a noise in my tires. Not sure if it is an the wheel bearings, bad tires, or alignement.


Alignment will not create a sound by it's self. The most common cause of humming (especially if you have an agressive tread design)is a wear pattern in the tires...check for that or rotate the tires around & see if the noise changes. If it does then you know it's in the tires. & Not always, but most of the time a bearing noise will increase or decrease in intensity if you load up one side at a time by doing 35-50 mph & turning slightly to each side.

2006 elantra whirring noise while driving


if you are sure its right rear of car, jack up car so the right rear is off the gound, grasp the spring with you hand, and with your other hand, spin the wheel, if you feel any roughness , your wheel bearing is bad and will need replacement.

2001 Sebring LXI convertable. Loud rumbling noise that increases as accelerating increases. Sounds like a rumble strip on the highway. I changed the tires with no change in the noise.


Bad hub bearing. Drive the car on a straght EMPTY road .@30 mph or when noise is audible, **** the wheel left than right (similar to a race car warming. tires) and listen if there is a change in the sound if so its a front bearing if not it should be a rear bearing .Jack the rear of the vehicle up and spin the tire holding onto the strut. Feel and listen for a vibration or noise. This should pinpoint that elusive noise.Let me know Good hunting
