tyre noise? wheel bearing maybe?
Posted 01 September 2012 - 16:01
Driving from about 32 -35mph I hear a whuring sound from the front of the car. I think its coming from the wheels/one wheel maybe. Doesnt matter what gear I'm in and as soon as I drop below or go above those limits the sound is gone! Any ideas?

Had a problem with mine, it was uneven tyre wear on the outer edge of the rear tyre. They were worn but not down to the indicators.
Changed front to rear and had new fitted to front no problems since.
I had the same issue when i bought my VRS and the rear tyres were 'stepped' giving a whirring noise anything over 30 mph.
Change the front tyres to the back and see if the noise changes or goes away. Its a quick and free fault finding exercise.
Check the wear on the shoulders of the tyres when you have them off and check the lateral play in each of the wheels by wriggling the wheel left and right to see if there is any excess movement that may indicate a possible bearing going.

Now I know what it is, I have put the alloy back on and will jut keep check the tyre regularly. I thought maybe the tyre had a
slight flat spot or something, but I'm no expert! Glad others are suffering with the same problem

^^ sorry for the crap typos, I'm on my phone!
Hopefully not also driving at the same time, that's called multi-tasking. LOL

Since I got that sorted, the problem disappeared. Something worth checking out any way?
