When does it make this noise?
when your driving at low speeds or city driving also when i put on the breaks and the noise changes when you turn corners
That sounds like a cv joint to me, have the half shafts been replaced?
no, do you think it could be a tire issue. My tires do not match. i have 3 bad tires (which i am getting replaced) I just replaced a rim on the passenger front and put a used tire on it that i just found out is bad. that is when i started getting the thumping noise
Ok, that helps, I would not do anything else until the tires are replaced, it is very likely that is all it is. If the cord in the tire is seperating it will do that and be careful because it could blow out on you, especially if you are on the highway at higher speeds.
