Hey there:

A rattling issue coming from a rear tire is either caused by loose wheel weights, a tire out of balance, bent wheel or perhaps damage to wheel bearings or loose brake components. Due to the multiple potential issues, and the risk of safety if the issue gets worse, it’s best to contact a local professional mechanic to complete an onsite vehicle is rattling or shaking inspection; so they can pinpoint the precise source of this issue and recommend the correct repairs.
