I am thinking that the noise is from a failed wheel bearing or possible cv joint failure
find yourself another service dealer as tire noise is either there or not there and rotation (if it is a faulty tyie ) would move to the new position
Here is a clue to consider
rotating tires is a ploy by the tire dealers to sell tires
have a wheel alignment done on the rear first and then the front and leave the tires alone
if it is a front wheel drive vehicle you will get 3 times the mileage out of the rear tires compared to the front drive tires and that is a big saving for you
next point -- radial tires continue to wear in the same pattern regardless of where they are put so how are you to know it it is a faulty tire construction or a need for a wheel alignment
third point --- many brands of tires are made as directional tires ( a directional arrow on the side wall) and cannot be rotated because they cannot be fitted on a wheel that rotates against the arrow
if they are the wear in pattern of the belts in the rubber is altered and may lead to tire failure ---the tread pattern is designed to remove maximum water and produce maximum grip in the direction of the arrow
I have to throw this out there,. there are some certain tires which can only be put on so that thye spin in only one direction, if put onto the rims reversed, they will create havoc (and excessive wear),. I forget what the name of this style of tires are called, but they do exist..
ok here also you can tell if you have these kind of tires as it is like running your hand over a pet petting the back of a dog from head towards **** - its fairly smooth -- and when you run your hand back up towards the neck you get resistance and the hair stands up - ie not as smooth of a feel as the other direction... this is true with these tires.
take tire off and remove caliper take the pads out then take a large c clamp with a flat piece of steel shape closely to one of the pads do not use your pads for this unless u kept one of the old ones which will work great place the piece of metal across the round center then place the clamp head behind the caliper so its directly in line with the metal plate centered over the round cylinder and then clamp down slowly by turning clamp handle make sure you stay centered when it flattens out set it aside and be very carefull of brake lines next see if wheel cylinder turns also shake it to check for looseness remember if its front wheel drlve the transmission will have that wheel for its main power and it would seem a little bit harder to turn put the car in nuetral to check spin it should drag some on the training because of all the gears but if its crunching when turning you will need to check the barings if thats not it then theres a problem with training ok after checking those things its time to put it back together remove clamp put pads back on slide it back on and bolt it back on thenput tire back on be sure to pump the brake peddal several times to build fluid back to cylender on brake then check underhood to make sure fluid is at proper hight make sure cap is on brake master cylender then test your brakes if this doesnt help try bleeding the brakes starting with rear passenger side then reardrivers side then front passenger side then drivers side in that order i replaced all my brakes myself and they are working great
the montero spare cover is a two pc cover the keepers go into the pc that is mounted under the tire,before you try to put the cover on look at the other pc and see where the slots are,to make it easier to install get the tire and the cover soaked with water so it can slide easier,put the retainers into the slots and turn 90 degrees-good luck
Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side
front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the
front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X"
pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to
side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.
This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)
