Rotating noise in front right wheel

A noise comes from my front right wheel when im at a certen speed. As i take off i dont hear it but when i get to about 30 mph it comes. Its not a constent noise its like a rotating noise. almost like a rock in a tin can. If u know what this might be please let me know. thank you.

Re: Rotating noise in front right wheel

We're going to need some details... what kind of car? disc brakes? drum brakes? wheel type? hub caps? etc.

Re: Rotating noise in front right wheel

I'd for sure pull the hubs off and check the bearings.
I'd do it right away, too.

Re: Rotating noise in front right wheel

Yeah, as stated, check bearings. Better yet, just put a floor jack under the lower a-arm and jack up that wheel, then rotate by hand and listen. Check runout too, does it appear to be wobbling? Check tire for foreign objects, like piece of metal or bolt/nail. I would definitely pull the wheel and look at spindle/bearings/races etc. It's real easy to take wheel off.

If mechanicals all look good and there's no object in tire, then look at the tire itself. Is it perfectly normal-appearing, or is it scalloped or badly worn? I have seen worn tires cause noises that I SWORE were mechanical problems. I (and other mechanics) have been totally surprised by the noises that come from bad tires, so keep that in mind as you search for the problem.........

Let us know what it is please. Should be fairly easy to find/fix. But may be dangerous, so check it out ASAP!

Re: Rotating noise in front right wheel

I think I read on another post you just did a brake job. Check the bearings. Make sure there properly greased and adjusted.
Did you use disc brake anti-squeel?

Re: Rotating noise in front right wheel

Brake job, ahhh. Then be sure and check the debris shields. Very easy to bend one and have it rubbing against the rotor, or pads may not be seated correctly.

Re: Rotating noise in front right wheel

i`d bet you bent the dust shield into the rotor, or possibly rust chunks on the tone ring for abs...
