Car: 2003 Mazda protege 5
For the past month, I’ve been hearing a sound that sounds similar to something knocking around and touching metal. I think its coming from my passenger right tire but there is no real way for me to tell. At first I thought the cause of the noise was because all my tires were near balding but the noise still persist even after new tires. The noise could be heard in drive and reverse mode while going 0-50mph. I never hear it on the highway, only on local roads. Attached is a sound clip of the noise I’m referring to. In the clip, the car starts off at a stop light then makes a right turn, then straight, stop, u-turn left, right turn again, and finally straight to end. I’ve taken it to a mechanic before and he told me it was because of my warp rims. My car doesn’t overly shake on local or highways so I don’t think that’s the case. Maybe my mechanic is not looking hard enough or I’m just overly paranoid and doubtful. Does anyone know what this sound means?
