I bought new tires this weekend and it doesn't feel as bad as before, would that be normal, seems interesting
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 3 months ago.

hey man how are you

the tires if they are wearing un evenly, they can make road noise, if you put your hand on the rubber on the old tires and run across ,if you feel like uneven rubber across the surface that will make noise and make the whole car vibrates and make you feel it is coming from different places.

the only i would add is check wheel bearings, raise on car lift and let them move the wheel laft right and up and down and see if there is play and also spin the wheels and try to hear bearing noise, i would think that they would have checked a tire place but i m assuming if they haven , you check it .

the problem is you said you hear it when applying brakes ,wish makes it not probable but i can hear it or feel it i m sorry.

if you thin it quiet down, keep driving until something becomes evident instead of throwing parts at it , if bearing is bad , it will get worse eventually

and you will know

Good luck

Chad
