The noise you hear may be from an object that got into the tire or you have another problem; if a tac or nail got into the tire, you may hear a tapping noise every time the tire goes around. This, however, is just one of many possibilities. I recommend that you have a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, come by and run a diagnostic on the noise you are hearing, and recommend the best path to repair.
