Check the wheel bearings. The wheel should not move from left to right. Also take the bike and get the rear wheel in the air on a jack and take hold of the wheel on top and on bottom and see if you can move the wheel while you push the top and pull the bottom repeatably

Noise coming from the rear of the car as result of changed rear tyres.


Did you fit tyres of the same size as were removed, if not tyre could be rubbing on inner guard or suspension.
Did you use the same rims as you removed, if not the rim offset may be wrong and rubbing on the brake or suspension.
Remove wheels and look for rub marks.

1997 Buick Park Avenue/Why do I hear winding, rubbing sound when turning right.


replace all the other engine mounts as the engine is still moving on turns. Check suspension as the tyre may be touching the guard on turns ( car ride height to low from sagging suspension)

Sounds like rubbing or grinding, a constant on/off as if the drum were warped


sound like something catching on the wheel or something in the tyre, if it was a bearing it would rubbing sound constant, could be the splash guard catching, any accident can cause movement and could catch, jack the wheel up and spin it look in the tread, test bearing hands 12 to 6 and 3 to 9 and wiggle the wheel any excessive movement it could be the bearing or the lower ball joint. you need a 10mm gap disc and splash guard, if the gap is too small bent it back. .

Correct procedure to remove rear tire from 2007 suzuki intruder vl1500.


Do you mean tyre or wheel.? Tyre removal requires the use of a tyre bead breaker and levers and rim protectors, once the tyrehas been broken away from the wheel all around on both sides , start tyre removal with the valve at about 1oclock insert a rim protector followed by a tyre lever and rest it against the rim protector and under the first bead of the tyre, then push the tyre into the middle of the wheel rim at about 6oclock on the rim, and keep it down while yuo push down the tyre lever against the rim pulling the tyre over the rim at the valve end, you will then need to insert another lever close to the ready inserted one to continue pulling the tyre over the rim all the way around untill removed completely, wheel removal on this bike is easy, securing the bike is not, because of the rear fender design you will have to lift the bike high enough to remove the wheel from the rear of the bike once it has been removed from the bike, Remove the securing nut from the r,hand side its a little fiddely unless you remove the exhaust silencers which is probably the best bet, remove the rear caliper and carrier from the bike, pull the wheel spindle from the left side out, it may need a slight. Knock to start from the r,hand side, then the caliper. Carrier can be removed , note order of spacers, and place in a safe place for replacment, from the right grab the wheel with both hands and pull gently untill it is removed from the diff, carefully remove from the frame takeing care not to mark the wheel or other paintwork, and not to dismount the vehicle fro its stand,

Can we change the size of rear tyre?


The tyre size is governed by the rim width and the space available in the wishbone. I would measure the space available for the tyres width right up inside the wishbone along with the tyre size that you have at present.
The tyre can be oversized but watch out for slipping on the rim of the wheel!
Consult a Yamaha Workshop for specialist tyre sizes and compounds. Pirelli make some super sticky tyres alowing for excellent high speed cornering!

Can any one tell me if a rear wheel assembly for a nissan senta. is universal ? or is there a specific right or left.


hi from uk all wheels on your vehicle should be fully interchangable to any axle/side however on a number of cars now the spare wheel in uk are a what is called SPACE SAVER this is usually a steel rim painted red with a smaller tyre that is for emergency/get you home only till origional wheel /tyre is fixed ?? only other problem you could have with wheels/tyrs when interchanging is many high spec wheels are what is called ROTATIONAL TREADS the tread pattern on each tyre must be fitted correctly in rotation of wheel for displacement of rain on road for one instance ? so if you change wheel from right front to left ? the rotation pattern on tyre faces wrong way hope you understand ?

Rear height of r15


you have increased the width of the tire only 5mm on the sides, all you need to do is to trim the mud guard down just enough to clear the tire and still work as a mud guard. if you were to install a longer shock you would change the geomerty of the machine making it harder to sit (higher) on and ride in the leaned over position seat no longer flat but leaning down hill to forks
