Humming Sound From Tire

Recommended Posts

hello all;

I popped my tire on a pot hole last month...and since then have had this humming sound coming from the tire when i drive. I replaced all my tires since then, and had the tires balanced, but have not had an alignment done. Does any one know what this sound is coming from? The guy who was replacing my tire mentioned that the rim was bent, then said it was fine and just replaced the tire. I'm wondering if its a bent rim or possibly a necessary tire alignment after i hit that pot hole. I don't have a full spare to check if it would work better. Also, saw in other posts on a similar topic people discussing bearings...i have absolutely no idea what those are, if anyone thinks they might be the issue I would appreciate any insights.

Thank you all in advance for any assistance(this noise is driving me crazy)

Some tires have a heavy duty rating & are very stiff with deep tread. Deep tread causes the air to literally flow through & make the noise. I think this might be the reason behind the humming noise from your tire.
