Q: Tires making noise and vibrating

asked by on January 25, 2016

I just put new tires on my car. After driving for about 10 to 15 minutes, I heard a noise like a helicopter and feel a vibration.

It sounds like one of your wheels has come lose. I would check all the lug nuts and make sure none of them are loose. A licensed mechanic can come out and help you perform this and further inspect the car for damage.
