What can be making Mitsubishi Endeavor 2005 vibrate when under slight load. Thirty to forty mph

All I can suggest is to make sure the tires are properly inflated, the tread wear is even (could be out of alignment). I doubt it has anything to do with tire balancing from what you described. If that's not the problem, it could be anything from damaged tie rods to worn out wheel bearings. If you want to check these yourself, jack up each wheel (one at a time) until it's not touching the ground at all, and give the wheel a few kicks. There should be very little or no movement and listen for rattling. Side to side movement makes me think steering issues, grinding or rattling noises, maybe bearings. It's not very expensive to have a mechanic give it a quick inspection. In fact "Multi-Point Inspections" are free at a lot of shops when you get an oil change or tire rotation etc. You should call a few and find out. Better safe than sorry. Good luck and safe travels.

Road noiseSounds like unbalanced wheel

If it is unbalanced, it should vibrate on the steering wheel. you should rewrite your problem and include car type, speed that it happens. Also take off any hubcaps and rotate tires front to rear and see if it changes.

Car has about 60,000 miles recently has had new tires just doesn't ride like it did when it was newer steering wheel also seems to have a slight vibration.

The tread pattern of the new tires can make it ride worse then the previous tires and if you have a vibiration it is very possible that a tire was not balanced properly or is out of round.

When driving vehicle it sounds like wheels are truck tires but when you turn wheel slightly other direction noise goes away

Check the tread depth using a penny. The tread should be higher that the top of Lincoln's head when pressed against the tire.

Also check for uneven tread wear on the tire.

A 4 tire replacment and alignment may be in order.

Also check if it is a wheel bearing. Jack up the car and pull in the tire in and up and down direction. If it is loose with a clanking sound then the bearing needs to be replaced.

Excessive tire wear, 29000 miles. Tires are cuping out and roaring. Tire dealer (Goodyear) said it was alignment. The truck always drove perfect.but I had it aligned anyway and noise is unbearable! 2008...

I am not sure I can help you much, I have bought, sold, used and abused tires all my life so I will try to help... First if you bought big aggressive tires that look cool, don't expect them not to make noise. Second, if you have ever run them underinflated and the cupping and adverse wear has started the only thing that may help reduce but not eliminate noise it is tire rotation.... Third aggressive tread is always noisy... And gets noisier with age. You have already aligned the truck, that is a step in the right direction. Keep tires properly inflated and rotate them often to square tread back up. Once cupping is minimised noise should go down. Just so you know I have learned about tire through a lot of personal experience. Don't by an aggressive tread if 98% of the time you or on the highway for the once or twice you may go off road... It's not worth it...

Winter Tires for Toyota Sienna 2008 LE

Going one "step" larger is fine but don't forget that in going to a slightly taller tire, you will be changing the final drive ratio. If you have any performance problems (like going up-hill) taller tires will make that problem worse. Your speedometer will be affected slightly as well (car will be going a few miles per hour faster than what you see on speedometer).
Best thing to do about choosing a winter tire has little to do with size and more to do with tread design...The more aggressive the tread and side lugs, the better it will go through snow. But with aggressive tread comes road don't go overboard with that unless you don't mind road noise. Best tread design I've found is something similar to Goodyear Wrangler R/T. They seem to be a good compromise between both.

2004 Audi A8L, irregular tire wear. Outer blocks of tires are feathering. Rough when sliding hand over tire from front to rear, smooth from rear to front. 255-45/18 34psi cold. new Bridgestone Turanza...

Once the alignment is good just keep rotating at least every 6,000 miles. Aggressive tread designs on these cars have to be pampered or you will get the feathering

Noise and vibration above 50 mph

Sounds like front differential or front drive axle issues. Check the front differential gear oil then take er' to the dealership before you end up spending a bunch of $. Most people change their oil frequently in the engine but forget about flushing the transmission fluid and changing oil in the front and rear differentials. I have three Ford 4X4s. Two which really get used hard. The 93 has 311K miles and still runs excellent. Trans and differentials get a fluid change every 25K miles and moble one synthetic engine oil changes every 5k miles.
