GMC Troubleshooting Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers
FWD. I hear it on flat surfaces and at low speeds. The wheel brakes and turns true, no wobbling, and I feel nothing when it clanks. If I try to sense anything when it clanks by putting my foot on the brake pad, on the floor, I feel nothing. I can try to shoot a quick video if you like?
I'll shoot the vid. Nope, pressing brakes, accelerating does nothing to eliminate the noise or even change the nature/frequencies of the noise.
It doesn't make the clanking noise all with every turn of the wheel or any other pattern. It simply clanks at random times.
However, it always makes the other noise, as if the tires are poorly worn in waves, and makes a sound like driving on ribbed pavement. However, the tires are smooth and worn evenly, and the pavement is normal smooth pavement.
I have another video which captures the other noise a little better. Let me know if I should send it.
Hello. I will check the brakes. The sound comes from behind the tire, not inside the RIM, but we'll see. Thanks.
