Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer working afternoon till just after midnight.

Can I get the make and model vehicle?

Does the noise come and go under different circumstances like swerving, accelerating, braking?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
2001 Chevy Impala when I accelerate the noise is lower
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** noticed with the tires when felt by hand or visually?

Is the noise the same or different when braking?

Is this a new issue or has it been going on for a while?

Have you tried any repairs so far?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No I hit a curve & now it makes noise it's gotten louder over time & the front tires wear quick �� I bought maybe 4 tires in the last 3months
Expert:  Chris (aka-Moose) replied 9 months ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** the tire wear concern you for sure have parts damaged, loose, or bent up front that are effecting the alignment. This noise can be coming from a damage axle half shaft, bad wheel bearing, bent brake rotor, tire tread wear concerns.

Step one is going to be having the spinning parts checked out.

Next will be an inspection of all bushings, parts, and joints that support the wheel for suspension and steering

Then an alignment is needed.
