Used tires sometimes are used for a reason. Also make sure your brakes are releasing completely (especially the emergency brake)...sometimes over-tightening wheels on to the disc brakes can cause excessive noise.
Sounds like either a bad tire or wheel bearing. Check you tires for rough spots or high/low spots and replace if belts are broken. This is a raised area on the tire that will run diagonally across your tire. If tires look OK try moving the front tonthe back and see if the noise moves. To check for a front wheel bearing drive about 50 kms per hour and slowly turn the wheels left and right. If the noise gets worse or louder you need a bearing. For the back younhave to raise the rear and pin the wheels by hand and listen for a roar.
Hi,It sounds like a noisey wheel bearing.you can check this by driving the car at 45 turn your steering wheel slighty to the left and back to the right.Listen for the howling noise to change,if it does you have one or both bad front wheel bearings.chances are thay both are bad.One's just louder than the other.if you are on a tight budget you can check them out by jacking your car up and put it on jack stands(safty first).Remove your wheels,brake pads and calipers,be sure to secure the calipers up out of the way.Remove the rotors.With everything out of the way now you can check the wheel bearings.You spin the wheel bearing slowly with the wheel stud this shuld turn smoothly,if you feel anything when turning it,then it is bad and it will need to be replaced.If you have any more questions just comment back and i'll answer. I hope this helps,if it does please rate my answer.Thank You for using fixya.....iluv2fish.........Ray.......
One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
