Question about 2008 Chevrolet Impala

2 Answers

I have steel belts showing on the back tires, which I replaced in August. I have heard from a sizeable local police department that they sent all of their 2008 Impalas back to have this fixed. Looks like a toe problem. Front tires are great and so are the outsides of the back tires.

Yep, that is a toe in problem. Or more precisely an Alignment problem. A 4 wheel alignment and replacing the tires should resolve the issue. Seeing as this hasn't effected you until now however I would also look at the tires as being faulty. If this didn't happen with previous tire changes then it is not a vehicle manufacture issue as it would have appeared before now. That doesn't mean that they didn't mess the alignment up when you had the tires replaced. If you bought the last tires at pep Boys I would go to a different shop to have them replaced and have the Alignment checked. An issue like this would have been a recall problem, check with the dealer and see if there was a recall. You can't go by what a Police Department had done because their vehicles may look the same but they are actually very different from what is normally sold. The suspension is similar design but different set up. If you have accidentally hit pot holes of bad road it could have caused this.

Check with your dealership to see if any recalls or TSB's have been issued on the matter.

Front passenger side thumping at very low speeds


check if you tires have rayon cords or steel belts. this is a problem associated with the older tyres that had rayon cords as the main structure of the tyre. When left standing after running and allowed to cool the rayon belts actually took on a flat spot on the bottom and the noise lasted until the tyre warmed up enough for the tyre pressure to make the tyre round again. In extreme cold it may be the same for steel belted radials as the flat bottom of the tyre would hold the shape until the rubber warmed up .

You need to verify that you don't have a low tire first,After that have the wheels checked on a spin balancer to check for a bent wheel,If you can't see a bend wheel problem,it will be a seperated tire or the steel belt shifted in one tire,You can rotate the tire to get that feeling out of the steering wheel until you replace ties.

Rear wheel


does the van shake or vibrate? does the van have tires on it ?start by switching the left rear with the right rear test drive and listen for soun if no sound then the tire has a bad steel belt replace tire if the sound is still present. jack up van and spin tire if no sound is heard replace wheel bearing and if there is still a sound look into brake drum for possible springs or clips that may have fallen into drum causing noise but i would say its more than likely the rear wheel bearing to change that u must buy a new bearing and follow instructions on replacing good
