    Default Wub Wub Wub noise

    It's not often that I drive without the stereo on however I was doing that on Friday night when I dropped the other half off in town.

    Anyway I can now hear this noise which seems to be coming from somewhere at the back of the car.

    It sounds like a wub noise and the faster I go the faster the wub goes
    wub wub wub wub wub....it's not loud but I can hear it.

    Nothing wrong with the tyres so I'm not sure what the problem would be.

    Brakes? Wheel bearing?
    Any ideas?

    Sounds very much like something is stuck in one of your tyres

    I had this problem 2 weeks ago and it turned out to be my passengers side rear tyre worn out quiet badly on the inner edge, didnt notice at first but then had a closer look with the wheel off.

    Changed that tyre and its gone alot quieter now but the noise is still there "Wub Wub Wub" Alot less louder than before. So am guessing its going to be one of the other tyres, though i cant spot anything on the other tyre?!?

    Garage said it might be a wheel bearing but cant locate which one it might be and just said let it get a little worse and then get it checked again.

    watching this thread as this noise is really annoying

    Well, let's start with the obvious

    What tyres are fitted?
    How old are they?
    What is the tread wear like on them?

    Inspect the tyre, across the tread and at each quarter (no need to raise just move the car)

    Next, raise the rear of the car and fully inspect the tyre and wheel
    Check for punctures, debris, etc

    With the car fully secured, release the handbrake, spin the wheel

    That pretty much covers the tyre, wheel, brakes, and hub
    Next you want to check the suspension and springs
    The easiest way is to drive slowly over a speed bump (the type that is across the entire carriageway lane)
    If the rear of the car wobbles side to side, then it is a shock absorber or spring

    Run through the above steps and post accordingly

    Cheers for the replies.

    The car has 215/50/r17 Goodyear NCT5s all round.
    They all have good tread across the width except for the front passenger side which has low depth.

    I've been over a few speed humps as there are plenty in the nearby streets and the car seems fine going over them. No other noises to tell of.

    I've just purchase some new wheels from work as this guy was looking to offload and I needed at least one tyre (but prefer to change in pairs. So I've got some 225/45/r17 astra turbo wheels to put on with Vredestein Wintracs all round to see if that makes a difference.

    Just waiting for my new disk and pads to turn up.
    I was just trying to guage if this was going to be an expensive fix aka wheel bearing.

    Guess we'll find out more when I get the wheels changed...

    You advised the noise was coming from rear, so only refer to this

    Take a look at the (rear) tyres and find the four digit year code, should end 09 10 or 11
    NCT5 tyres, where were these manufactured?
    As above fully inspect them (not just as described as above) visually first and then physically if nothing untoward is found

    When you replace the front tyres, swap the rears to the front
    This will wear them out, rather than having older tyres at the rear for a long time
    Equally, see if the noise swaps from the rear to the front
    If not, then the issue is most likely with the rear hub

    When was the alignment last checked (and corrected)?
    The rear is known for being horrendously incorrect from factory and requiring adjustment
    However, the usual sign of this is wear on both inside or outside edges of rear tyres, and once the tyres are down to 3mm horrendous noises
