Ever notice that your car starts to hum while you are driving down the road? This could mean that it’s time to schedule a tire service to rotate your tires. Your car’s weight distribution, brakes, and accidental curb contact all play a role in wearing down your tires. Rotating your tires will improve traction, allow the tread to wear more evenly, help you get a longer lifespan out of your tires, and prevent an emergency tire repair.

You may be asking, “Why do tires make a humming noise?” Here are 3 major problems to consider:

  • Abnormal tire wear, such as feathering or cupping, can be caused by alignment and suspension problems. In turn, feathering and cupping generate noise because the tread surface is no longer smooth. You may replace your tires, but suspension repair and an alignment will prevent the problem from resurfacing. 
  • Other causes for tire noise are tire damage, such tread separation and shifted belts (common results of defective construction), over-inflation, and hitting potholes and curbs, leading to an out-of-round or out-of-balance tire.
  • Tire scuffing can occur when the alignment angles don’t keep the wheels aligned in a turn, forcing one tire to scuff sideways instead of rolling forward. The same noise can be caused by very low tread depth on your tires. Combined with excessive speed, this can lead to tire squealing and possibly a loss of traction.

Ensure tires are properly inflated, slow down in turns, and have your suspension checked for damage and proper alignment. Contact our ASE Certified technicians at Expert Car Care today for more information about tire service and tire repair and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop proudly serves residents in the community of West Allis, WI, and surrounding area.
