The scallop is probably your noise. that or a wheel bearing. scalloping is either caused by bad shocks or poor alignment. should have front end checked out and alignment performed. good luck!

Very uneven tyre wear - wearing on both inside front tyres


Uneven tyre wear is caused by either worn bushes or incorrect tracking.

It sounds as though your car is 'toe in' and needs the wheels tracking - aligning. Take it to a tyre fitting bay - it doesn't cost much to have it checked/rectified.

97 Cadillac Delegance Front end noise , dissapears when going into right hand turn then returns when straightening out. Tires recently rotated and balanced , tire that was on right front had wear pattern...


I would be checking out the wheel bearings for the problem. I would also be checking the front suspension for worn ball joints and steering end joints. Tyre wear patterns indicate unbalance-wheel alignment-shock absorbers and front end wear. I refuse to rotate tyres for several reasons Radial tyres when developing a wear pattern will retain that wear pattern even if placed on a trailer--Wear patterns show a fault for that wheel and tells which wheel and what needs to be done to repair it and lastly tyres wear in pairs so if you have a front wheel drive car why replace 4 tyres when the need is to replace only 2 front ones. Saves about 50% of the cost of tyres. The rotation theory came about from cross ply tyres and does not apply to radials except for tyre dealers profits

Could be your Tyre / tracking have a look for un-even wear.

If not, it sounds like the wheel bearing is worn.

Severe tire wear within the last 6 months. I'm looking at getting the front end aligned, but I'm sure it needs shocks or struts. I don't wanna sound stupid, which does it have or does it have both??


if you look under the wheelarch,above the front wheel,if you can see a strut surrounded by a spring,then you have both.(the damper is inside the strut)(ive put it this way so you can see for yourself.)NOW tyre wear,if your shockers have gone the wear pattern will be flat across the tyre tread/no tread/tread/no tread,and you will feel like you have square wheels.
to check shockers, push hard down on one corner,the car should bounce up,then down,then settle at its original height.no more.

I have a 97 s320 and i get a vibration between 50-55mph after that it smooths out


The 1st thing to get looked at is the wheel balance.Have them checked.At the same time,if the tyres are o.k. have them rotated.This means you swap the tyres from the front to the back.Always keep the tyres on the same side of the car.So left rear goes to left front and the same on the righthand side.Also,a wheel alignment should be done.These are a tyre shop job.Cheap and doesn't take that long.If these don't correct the problem,the next thing to get looked at are the front wheel bearings.Get the tyres done 1st.This is the 1st step and also the most common problem.Hope this helps

Is it normal for my tires to hum in my 2007 impreza wagon? sounds like i have a rice burner sometimes, but only from the cockpit!


If they are all terain or off road tyre's then it's normal if it has road tyre's then it would be best to get it checked wheel bearings and brakes.
