    Default Im sick if it!!!! ****** wheel noise!!

    Ive have this noise now for a while!! It sounds very much like a wheel bearing noise and its bad at about 45MPH,ive checked the tyres to see if they are wearing around the edge and no they are not,also ive swapped the wheels around to see if that does anything and no it does not! So i think its a wheel bearing but i dont know which ****** one it is???? How easy are they to do and where to get one from??(not the stealers) Does anybody know a good spanner boy around the Stoke area to get it fixed for me???

    What tyres are you running? Some folks complain about the factory fit Bridgestones being noisy (which they are).

    Dunlop tyres are made out of melted down gutties and ping-pong balls. That could well be your problem.

    I'd look at the tyres first. Big Phil ended up having all four of his bearings/hubs replaced over a period of time, only to find the noise was still there - and disappeared when he needed to change tyres and used a different make!

    SP Sport 01 is supposed to be very quiet, but the likes of the SP9000 and SP3000 normally fitted by Vauxhall tend to be a bit loud.

    Personally not a fan of Pirelli, especially the P6000 - I found it to be a miserable tyre. Was factory fitted to my Corsa, and I couldn't wait to get them changed for a set of decent tyres. Went for Goodyear Excellence on that, they were....well....excellent.
