Q: Noise around the tires

asked by on

My car is making noise around the tire area.

A noise from the tire area could mean a lot of problems. Depending on if it is coming front or rear of the vehicle, the brakes, bearings, tires, suspension problems may be a cause. I recommend you seek a mechanic like the certified ones from YourMechanic to come and test your vehicle for noise and to do a complete inspection of the suspension.
