low oscillating noise - wheel bearings tires

2019-11-18Hello folks This is a question about a Subaru Outback but probably pertains to many other cars as well I have a 2006 Subaru Outback with 112K miles I bought new tires for it in May 2012 and in September 2013 I started to notice a low humming/buzzing sound while driving I looked online and came up with 2 options - either the wheel bearings or the tires Because the sound changed pitch Wheel bearing issues should show up during testing with the wheels off the ground Raise the wheels and spin the tires while running your hand across the tread It should be pretty smooth with no really noticeable high or low spots If you notice high and low spots you most likely have a shock problem that has become a tire wear issue

Passat (B6) :: Loud Oscillating Noise / Minor Steering

Passat (B6) :: Loud Oscillating Noise / Minor Steering Vibrations At Highway Speeds Sep 7 2011 2008 Passat 45k No accidents Towed twice on flatbeds due to bad fuel pump Tires were rotated every 10k or so I'm wondering if there are any suspension (or wheel) issues that can lead to maybe tire wear and a loud oscillating noise

2015-7-22It looks like I have wheel bearing wear - either the fronts or the rear hubs (sounds like from the rear) Since I have LT Max Care warranty it will take of that (the bearings run ~$65 per corner) and they're sealed units So its off the dealer for that remedy What I noticed was a low oscillating hum ~ 30mph and really gets louder 45-50mph

2015-8-24It's definitely not a noise that was there when we bought the car Unfortunately my cell is apparently bad at capturing audio so hopefully my description will be enough The noise is very faint almost inaudible at low speeds Between 30 and 35 mph it gets much louder peaking at about 33 There's some vibration through the accelerator pedal

2017-1-15I spent almost a year chasing down a vibration at highway speed in a '08 FWD Finally replacing the front wheel bearings solved the problem The van wasn't making any noises associated with bad wheel bearings and spinning the tires when the vehicle was on jackstands didn't result in anything that would point me towards the bearings

2017-3-6WHEELS AND TIRES Wheel-and tire-related vibrations occur at a relatively low frequency typically 10–15 Hz This can result in a vibration experienced at speeds usually above 40 mph Even a small amount of wheel imbalance can translate into a vibration problem Tires wear faster than other components as a result customers frequently replace

Oscillating Steering Wheel Vibration

2018-8-9It vibrates in an oscillating fashion after 65mph and gets worse as the speed increases The oscillation is consistent in frequency Also at lows speeds I get a random growling noise and it can be felt in the steering wheel but it goes more than it comes I've eliminated dragging brakes (front rotor temps are the same (100-110 F avg )

2018-9-1#4 Look Into The Wheel Lots of components could be in question if the vibration comes through the wheel If the tires are fine the wheel is the next item that should come on your diagnosis list Loose or damaged wheel bearings could give your vehicle a good shake at higher speeds

2016-7-6A bad wheel bearing can usually be detected by jacking the tire off the ground and checking for playAlso if the noise occurs at very low speeds 10-30mph it's most certainly tires Some tires especially $55 ones can be pretty noisyAnd yes rotate them to put the best two on the front axleDoes that make any difference?

2020-8-17The causes of a scraping or squealing noise while driving depends on which part is affected In order to fully understand the root cause of the squealing it is very important to look into all parts of your car to fix the noise These are the causes to look into in the event of a scraping noise

2020-7-19A friend and I put it on his lift to check for wheel bearings/axle play and noticed when free spinning the front driver side wheel that there is a loud noise and you can actually feel the vibration while touching the diff When driving in 2wd its the worst when going into 4wd most of the noise/vibration goes away but not completely

2015-6-26Hey Guys I've been noticing a weird noise while driving lately Going above 45mph and in the 60+ area while cruising I'm hearing a faint Oscillating noise like fha fha fha or wha wha wha and it pulsates more or less depending on the speed and degree of the turn Do you guys know what it

Reasons Your Car is Making Noise when Accelerating

2020-7-29The bearings are what allow the cam and crankshaft to spin for thousands of miles and millions of revolutions If any of the bearings fail they will cause a ticking or screeching noise Again the noise is more noticeable on acceleration because the engine spins faster The pistons can also wear and make noise

2017-6-4Hello all I have a 2014 focus st with stock 18 inch grey rado wheels and goodyear Eagle f1 assymetric 2 summer tires I get this constant humming sort of noise which gets louder with speed and is most noticeable around 60 - 80 km/h After 100 km/h it's get a little less noisy but can tell that

2015-2-14I have a 2000 silverado 1500 ex cab that has recently started making an oscillating scraping noise It initially sounded like it was coming from the front end I have had to replace the CV axles several times from the rubber boot coming apart and allowing the grease to escape which caused some co

2010-10-28Faulty wheel bearings produce noise that generally changes when the bearings are loaded When road testing the vehicle turn the vehicle sharply to the left and right This loads the bearings and changes the noise level When wheel bearing damage is slight the

2008-12-17I agree with Pete it would not be normal for wheel bearings to fail at such low mileage But nor should tires get noisy or shifter boxes fail at this mileage I will take the car into our local Discount tire shop and have them give me their opinion I'll post what they have to say A2Jack

Most phantom wheel bearing noises we find are actually due to tire noise rather than bad wheel bearings Try rotating your tires to see if it changes the noise If your tires are poorly worn it may take a few hundred miles after the rotation to smooth them out low-speed wheel noise is associated with brake issues rather than bearings
