Good day guys (and gals), I have an issue. I have a semi- loud (roaring kind of) noise coming from, I think, the wheel area. It has been happening for about 2 months. I have read several posts, adhered to suggestions and nothing has worked. It sounds like “cupped tires”. But, I bought new tires and the sound is still there.
The air shocks are good (to my knowledge).
The noise is noticeable at about 25-30mph. It gets louder and stays constant at around 65-70mph. Also, when I am driving on a straight roadway, then slightly turn the steering for left to right or right to left, the noise appears to shift from side to side.

Re: Hey Guys, I need HELP!!! Weird sounds when I'm driving!!

Check that all wheels / bolts / nuts are fully tightened. Otherwise, were bearings properly done?

I've checked and rechecked the nuts and bolts. I'm thinking that the bearing weren't done properly. I will have them rechecked. Thanks

Some shops get lazy and don't torque them correctly. Ask me how I know....
