Turning to the internet for help:
2013 Mazda 3i Sport
I’ve had a noise coming from my front passenger side tire area since I had my tire replaced in November. It’s gotten increasingly louder. I’ve taken it to the shop where I bought all my tires (all except the new one are a little over a year old) and I was told it’s nothing. That if it’s a wheel bearing I’ll just know when it goes. Which freaks me out.
Tonight I went to the gym and my tire (same tire location, after a rotation, so not the same tire), sounded like the thump thump thump of a flat. It’s not a flat.
Anyone have any insight? I don’t wanna die on my commute or have my wheel fall off even on the way to the shop to get it looked at.
Is it a wheel bearing? Steel belt? CV joint?
Also would like to add that
-there’s no clicking while turning.
-Lug nuts are not loose.
-sound is never present while stopped or idling.
-sound begins at 5mph, thuds up to 30mph, then gets faster, higher pitched but not as loud.
Thanks in advance.
