After removal of studded...

After removal of studded tires from winter, noticed that I have electric motor over-reving like sound, like they are running extra high speed. sometimes it is very loud and other times not so loud.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?

Tires are due to replace but have 5-8K tread left and healthy tread wise, even and no odd wear

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

2015 Prius

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Prius yourself? What have you tried so far?

I do change filters, have fluids changed professionally with synth oil, changed spark plugs is only thing recently done by me

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No warning lights or other issues, just motor noise is troubling me

Thanks, ***** ***** good day - this was real helpful :(

I'm sorry was working with a few clients...what speed does it happen...does it go away if you turn the wheel slightly right or left?

I do notice a change when turning sometimes is does make a difference

It's very common for wheel bearings to fail on a prius with over 100k . It's a reasonable repair
