Question about 2008 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

Bad road noise/tire growl. Thinking it was just the tires, I just changed OE Goodyears (with 33k on them) with new Firestones--and I still hear lots of noise. Car is maintained by the book. 30k service 3 months ago. What's up?

Have you checked the spindle bearings, what about the rear wheel bearings, jack up the car and spin the wheels, start the car and put in drive for the front wheels (you might have to sit inside and shut the door to hear it), always stop the wheels from turning before putting back in park.

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.

WHEEL BEARING USUALLY STARTS MAKING A ROARING TYPE NOISE WHICH USUALLY GETS LOUDER THE FASTER YOU DRIVE, SOMETIMES THEY WILL BE LOOSE , TO CHECK JACK UP THAT WHEEL AND GRAB TOP AND BOTTOM OF TIRE AND SHAKE, IF THERE IS MOVEMENT, TRY TO GET SOMEONE TO ROCK TIRE FOR YPU AND WATCH WHERE AXLE GOES INTO CENTER OF BEARING AND SEE IF AXLE IS MOVING WITH TIRE MOVEMENT AND SPINDLE REMAINS STATIONARY, THEN IT IS BAD BEARING, OR SOMETIMES THERE WILL BE NO MOVEMENT, THEN BLOCK REAR WHEELS AND RUN CAR WITH THAT WHEEL IN AIR AND SEE IF YOU HEAR NOISE, GOOD LUCK.

Saturn SL1, growling and vibration coming from right front wheel,


Might be a hub bearing. Those make a growling noise when they are bad. When it is on jack stands you should be able to put your hands on the top of the tire and the bottom of the tire and move it back and forth. and the same with putting your hands on the right and left side of the tire. if you can and it moves back and forth then the bearing is back. but becarefull not to get the movement confused with a bad ball joint or tire rod. which could also be your problem but they dont make a growling noise

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

My 2006 dodge has a lot road nosie. I put alittle cheaper tire on it could that be the problen//


That could definitely be the problem. Depending on the difference of tread pattern and density of the rubber used to make the tire, the amount of road noise can differ greatly. Hope this helps. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Without being there to actually hear the noise its hard to say. Make sure your lug nuts are torqued to 90 ft lbs. This noise just started when you put on a new tire? Yes a CV joint can give you road noise.
