Are the tires smooth or choppy as you look at the tread?
Run your hand along the tire tread,it should be smooth,no high or low spots.
High and low wear spots make a lot of noise on a tire.
Also,as you drive and hear the noise move the steering wheel slightly left and right,if you can change the noise at all then it may just be the wheel bearings.
Don't forget to make sure the metal inner dust shields beside the rotors are not touching anywhere on the rotors..
One or more of your tires are no good.
How to check this is : hard to explain.. but will try.. Rub your hand on top the tire... If you are on the passenger side of car rub them counterclockwise and drivers side clockwise... If the tread is bumpy, it will make that noise... If the treads are smooth, then the tire or tires ar o.k.
If it is thunk, Check to make sure the brake caliper can move smoothly on it's mount and check the sway bar link to see if it has broken, and check all of the bushings on the lower arm, also check to see if there is play in the lower ball joint. This you can seen by raising the left side of car with the wheel and tire still on and snug- try move the bottom of the tire in and out- then check by grabbing the tire at the sides, and see if it has any play as you try move the tire side to side. Lower ball joint play will show as the tire moves, it may or may not make noise. Tie rod end play indactes worn tie rod end(s) when you move tire side to side. If you hear noise or have play in the wheel/tire and you know the tie rod is in good shape- check the bolts that retain the flange of the wheel bearing to make sure they are not loose in the steering knuckle. Also check to make sure the axle nut is tight as well.
If all bushings look good, check angine and transmission mounts and bolts, as well as the bolts that hold the transaxle to the engine bolts as well as the cradle bolts that hold the cradle to the body.
If the noise is a scratching sound, or a screech, the brake pads may be worn out, pads may be contaminated with oil, or "chill spots" fret cracking on the brake rotor may be appearing. Check to see what the condition of the rotor face is- it should be relatively smooth and bright. Any bluing is an indication of heat and you may have a brake caliper not retracting or binding on the mount.
If the noise doesn't change when you turn left or right while you are moving than The first thing I would look at is the tire. Check for uneven wear or cupping. The tread should be worn evenly and smoothly all the way around the tire. Something you can try to at least eliminate the tires as the problem is to rotate the tires. If the noise changes, stops, or moves from the front to the rear than you know its the tires.
If the noise still persists after rotating the tires than we will have to think of something else.
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.
well did the noise start after the tires were rotated?could be choppy tires,,,if not ,i strongly think it sounds like a bad wheel bearing,,,,if you drive and while its making the noise turn left and right quick and see if the noise gets louder and which way turning makes it louder,,if you turn leftand it gets louder its usually the right wheels bearing as you are putting load on it, if it makes the noise louder while turning right its the left wheel bearing,,,got it
Make sure that your tires are both inflated to 45-40 psi, have good tread and are not leaning on or out of the frame. Were both of your batteries replaced at the same time? Is there any noise or vibration coming from the motors that may indicate one has less power than the other? You may want to check the bearings in the casters to ensure they can move freely. I hope this helps!
Check the condition of the wheel bearings, front and back side if the brake rotor, and the back side of the rim. Everything should be clean, rust build-up can throw everything out of true. The hub or wheel-bearing should be tight and smooth when spun.
