Question about 2006 Kia Sportage

3 Answers

I believe it's a tire noise. It was making a noise and so I had the tires rotated. Different road surfaces the louder the noise. Going slow I really can' hear it. Since the tires have been rotated now making a noise louder and vibrates when driving over 60 mph.

Have the hubs inspected and the tires balanced. The wheel/tire assembly out of balance will cause the over 60 mph wobble/ steering wheel shake or drone. When did this occur or has it been going on for a while now?

    Having a similar problem with 2001 Kia Sportage EX 4X4.. Shaking around 50-60mph and slight grinding sound in back wheels. Just had tires replaced this year and engine tuned up. Check engine light just came on showing P0171 engine running lean. Don't know what that means.

I hear tire on the road noise


Try gently "weaving " back and forth while you can hear the noise,if it's worse turning one way than the other,figure on a wheel bearing,if it doesn't change,it's a tire . Rotation may calm the noise down and give you some more tire life.

With having 215 55r16 in the front and 215 60r16 in the back is that going to cause a loud humming noise?


Tires with a more aggressive tread pattern will transmit more road noise, 215 60r16 has a greater outside dia than 215 55r16, which means the front tires will rotate slightly faster than the rear, apart from road noise there is a possibility of setting an ABS code over time, or if your vehicle has AWD it could wreck your transfer case, you should never mix tire sizes for road use, hope this helps.

Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?


it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

The car makes a howling noise while driving it


well did the noise start after the tires were rotated?could be choppy tires,,,if not ,i strongly think it sounds like a bad wheel bearing,,,,if you drive and while its making the noise turn left and right quick and see if the noise gets louder and which way turning makes it louder,,if you turn leftand it gets louder its usually the right wheels bearing as you are putting load on it, if it makes the noise louder while turning right its the left wheel bearing,,,got it

My 2003 wrx has increasing road noise - its getting hard to hear the radio - no grinding, no pops, grunting - just loud and louder humming above 40 mph - even when i put it in neutral. drives fine - could...


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
