Body Rumble

8 posts in this topic

I had a new rear tyre fitted about 4 weeks ago and noticed a small body rumble when I reach 65 to 70mph, I went back to my local garage that fitted the tyre and they swapped it for another one and rebalanced the wheel and it still happened, they then rebalanced the rest of the tyres and it still happens...They have checked all the bushes and engine mounts/ track rod ends and still it does it.

Anybody got any ideas.......The garage have said it my be worth having the wheels balanced while on the car??

Open to sugestions

Did it do this before the tyre was replaced?

Oval tyre not unusual to get a non round tyre or damage to the alloy

I think its a body rumble coming from the rear but hard to tell....dont think its coming from the front or I would feel it coming through the steering wheel?

I assume the wheel bearings have been checked? You could also try swapping the front and rear wheels over to see if the noise shifts - that would then either confirm or rule out the wheel/tyre combo.
