Q: Road noise from the front end. I thought the tires were bad. replaced the tires and the noise is still there?

asked by on

When I turn the wheel the noise is quiet.

My car has 135000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

If you are hearing noise from the front wheel bearings, then you will have a noise that will get louder the faster you go. The noise may get more or less as you turn the wheel left or right.

Have the noise verified, and replace the wheel bearings, if verified bad.
