I have a 2005 lexus is 200, but I’m not sure if the model even matters for my question.
Anyway, I’m hearing a strange whistle from the front right wheel, and I’m sure the sound comes from it. I made a youtube video so you can get the idea.
The sound starts at around 50km/h speed and it does not change after that, meaning that it doesn’t become harder if I speed up and if I slow down to 40 or 20 it does not go away. But if the car is cold, it does not start until I reach 50-60km/h speed.
Also, I tried turning the engine off on neutral while driving and it did not influence the noise in anyway. So its not related to motor.
In the video it starts from 11s and you can hear it clearly starting at 57s when I speed up. Because of other sounds you probably can not hear it as clear as I can, but just listen to the whole video and I think you will get a clear idea.
Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyv8CqRgaso
The thing is, I went to a decent repair garage and they could not say what it is. So assume that basic things like breaks or the like were checked by mechanics.
I’m planing to go to a lexus dealer soon, but I want to get an idea of what it is, it really does not sound like anything that I can guess. Can you guess what it can be?
I want to add that there probably was a hard hit to the right wheel recently while driving in reverse, I say “probably” because the person did it does not want to admit it and I can only guess, so I dont have an idea how it went. But I found a deep slicing (not sure if its the right word) on the right wheel tire and it was so deep (and around 5cm in width) that I had to replace the tire. So assume that there could have been a hard hit and the wheel took damage. The noise started a couple of the days after I found it.
