Hello, i am Randall. can you tell me when the noise sets in? speed? and does the pitch of the noise change when swerving left and right on the road when you hear the noise?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It starts around 7 mph and gets louder the faster you go. No, the pitch don't change when swerving.
