If your tires are making abnormal noises, see the Wichita auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive for help.
You were headed home from Exploration Place when you noticed – even over the noise the kids were making – an odd sound coming from your wheels. When you got home, you looked at your tires and noticed they seemed okay. A bit worn. But still okay. You’re not sure why your tires would be making odd noises.
According to liveabout.com, odd noises coming from your tires could indicate problems with your alignment or suspension. One hint that it’s an alignment or suspension issue that’s causing the problem is the wear pattern on your tires.
“Abnormal tire wear, such as feathering or cupping, can be caused by alignment or suspension problems,” liveabout.com says. “Alignment problems can also produce noise by causing tire scuffing. When the wheels are not aligned during a turn, a tire can shift sideways instead of rolling forward.”
In both cases, you’re probably going to have to replace the worn tires. To prevent future damage, you need to get your suspension repaired and your tires aligned. You should also make sure you care for your new tires – rotate them about every 5,000 to 8,000 miles. And be sure to keep them properly inflated.
“Always address tire noise as soon as possible to ensure that it is not a safety concern or an indication of a larger problem.,” according to liveabout.com.
