2011 Hyundai Elantra, 42k miles. The car is my girlfriends which I drive once every few weeks. Yesterday I noticed a rumbling noise coming from the right front tire area. The noise only comes about when turning a fairly sharp left while above 20 mph. Taking a left onto a side street etc doesn’t cause any noise, but taking one while going through a big intersection etc. where the speed is up a little bit causes the noise. The tires are original, obviously not new, but they still have a decent amount of tread left on them, they’re Continental Pro Contacts.
Tire, ball-joint, brake pad rubbing are my thoughts, any other ideas? I’m going to take it to get looked at tomorrow, I just wanted to know if anybody could offer any clues before I bring it in. I did spray the area with a hose in case there was something caught in there, but that didn’t change anything. The tire looks fine, no abnormal wear or bulges, the car is in alignment and makes no other noise except in the circumstance noted.
Thanks in advance!
