    hey people
    hoping someone can help me out here.
    the other day we had a nice little snow storm and i had my performance tires. so i did some drifting or e-braking in the parking lot at work.
    well now i have a loud tire noise coming from the front end.
    it seems to get louder when i corner .
    i went and changed the front tires to some cheap 14's all wheathers and i'm getting the same thing. while i had the front tires off the ground i gave them a shake to see if it was bearings but everything seemed fine.
    there are no pulls to either side and there is no clinking or clanking from bad bushings .

    i have no clue
    anyone have any input

    they are pressed in. and you can do it in your driveway with the know how. Some guy used a cherry picker and a jack to do it on his.

    If you take it to a shop make sure the wheel bearing doesn't have play when they give it back to you otherwise your back at the same situation if they don't seat it right, much less don't do anything at all.

    I would have guessed wheel bearings too. My accord had the same issue. that noise is annoying.
