    Default What Caused Your Rear Wheels to Drone

    IF you've had a droning/rumbling noise from your Vec-C/Signum, what turned out to be the cause? The Signum I bought was doing it on the test drive and the salesman and I both thought it was a wheel bearing, which he agreed to get fixed, until his mechanic made us both look like amateurs by putting on new tyres and solved the problem straightaway.
