    Default Bad Whine

    Alrite guys

    Was driving earlier on back country lanes between posible wedding venues when a car came round a corner on the opposite side of the road and i had to swerve to miss him and caught all my alloy along the curb.

    Later that day me and my fiancee noticed the car was whining from what seems the rear, rather loudly.

    Has anyone any idea what this whine could be? Its always whined a little since i changed my alloys and put cheap budget tyres on that came with the alloys from new but it seemed alot louder tonight. I also noticed that it seemed to be whilst free rolling or slowing down etc, not when i floor it.

    I run a 3.2 v6 AUTO

    Any idea guys?

    Cheers

    If it is the same wheel that you kerbed, then you might have damaged the wheel bearing.

    Ye, just had a word with my Dad about it and he said same thing. Come to think of it, it probably is as i remember my old works vans bearing went and it does sound rather similair. Just worried though incase its a more major problem. As ive got a 400mile trip at the end of the week.
