There is no end to the maintenance you have to consider when you own a car, truck, or anything with pistons and an axle. There are hundreds of parts, lots of friction, and inevitable wear and tear. And no area is that more evident, than with your tires.
Even if your tires are not flat they seem to always be communicating to you something is not right. From all types of vibrations to other ominous noises, they always need something. And the minute we sense them, we turn into tire detectives to resolve the problem before we get a flat tire or worse.
So here is a quick checklist of things that could be causing the tire noise or vibration menace:
- Wheel bearings are malfunctioning
- Faulty Ball Joints
- Faulty Tie Ends
- Tires are worn down
- Tires are poorly inflated
- Poorly balanced tires
- Faulty Brake Disc
- Faulty Brake Pads
- Bad Axle
Wow that is a lot. Getting it fixed, while tedious, can prevent even bigger problems with your vehicle, so take care of those tires.
