: Front tire noise

12-21-10, 08:40 PM
Hello all.
About a week ago I start getting a noise whenever I turn left and I'm going over 40KM. It is really annoying and I have no idea what it could be. I don't think it does it that often when I turn right and if it does its not too bad.

Anybody have any idea what it could be?

Describe the noise.

I would say it sounds like a rubbing.

Does it vary with speed?

Yes. The faster I go, and when I turn, the louder it gets. It doesn't seem to affect the handling or anything.

My car was making the same noise and it turned out to be a bad transfer case.

Wheel bearing?

Mine was a bad front wheel bearing. Now I have the same issue on the rear. The noise was more of a humming noise however and initially only noticeable on exit ramps. It gradually got worse so that it did it all the time.

I'd go with a bad wheel bearing too. Mine is doing it on the rear, but I haven't got around to trying to change it out again.

Just an update. I haven't taken it in yet to get it looked at. I did do some looking around my self and did notice the front right fender liner is broken, and is most likely the piece that rubs when I turn.

Now my question is: Has anyone replaced that or anything before, and what prices am I looking at? I checked out Gmpartsdirect an it seems to be pretty cheap. If I were to go to a dealership will I be able to get close to those prices at all?
