I presume that the tyre you have replaced is with the same specification size as on the either side, If so you need to check if the tyre is rubbing against the mudflaps or the mudguard specially when the side is loaded or the wheel is turned to one side. Lift up the side with a jack, turn the wheel to either side and check if there is enough gap on the sides. If you had replaced the tyre after a burst/puncture, had run the car after this had happened, then the wheel alignment must be looked in specially for the tow in/ out. Check for the wheel position using a thread held against the rear wheel and the front wheel postioned with a slight inner view, check the wheel from the top to bottom with a plumline. You will get some indication if there had been any shift in the chassis or the suspension. press down the side up and down to hear any creaking, if so check on your suspension parts, the lower arm, the roll bars and the strut/ shock absorbers. You have the problem lurking around here. Hope my advice helps you out. Good luck good day
Vibration at 40 mph hard to diagonisis without looking at front end. Could be wheels need balancing, new wheels and rims. Loose or worn suspension items.
Bring vehicle into a tire and alignment shop. Most Sears auto center have them.
With regards to rubbing noise again hard to diagonisis without looking at the affected tire, probably a splash shield hitting the tire in reverse.
Alignment shop will find the problem.
My immediate quick test would be to move the front tires to the back (and backs to front, of course) then try it out. If the vibration is still there but feels like it's coming from somewhere else (vibration could feel like it's in in steering wheel or seat), you've got a broken belt or bent rim (wheel). Don't want to get your hands dirty? Get all 4 wheels balanced -5 to 10 bucks per wheel.
Even though you had the brake pads replaced, and since the sound you describe is a "rubbing" sound, I would suspect that the brake caliper piston is sticking and causing brake drag. The only way to check is to pull the wheel and check the caliper. If it is sticking, it will wear the pad out quickly and wll generate heat. After driving, check for excessive heat coming from the wheel. It could be a wheel bearing, but I would check out the brake caliper first. Sure hope this helped. Good luck.
call the service hotline number on you owners manual for honda usa and see what they recomend. you might try to locate the fuse for your electronic all wheel drive and remove it and see if it is smoother to drive. any shaking shows signs of a unbalanced drivetrain which is not good for the conponents.
I have a 2006 Honda Element as well, and mine started making "rubbing" noises when I made a slow hard turn left or right. It had 49K on it. Took it to a dealership and had it looked at. The technician knew what it was right off the bat. The rear differential needed to be serviced. Said the fluid had broken down and needed replacing. $79.00 to fix. CRV have the same problem. Just get it serviced and it should be ok.
