Can worn tires cause a car to vibrate and make growling nose?

A local mechanic checked my car and told me my old tires causing the vibration. But for me, used tires should not make a car vibrate and growl. Car vibrates about 40-50 miles per hour. He had balanced the wheels.

    could be. especially if they wore weird and/or had a very agressive tread pattern when new. snow tires tend to do that when new and more when worn.

    nah it shouldn’t it. if i may ask which side does that? driver side or Passenger side?

  • Dentz:

    vibrate? yes
    Growl? no
    The growl sounds like a bad bearing of some type. Should get it checked again A.S.A.P.
    Possible saftey issue if wheel or axel bearing!

    Just change the tires

  • G6er:

    Yes, this can happen, it’s called a shifted belt. It can make the car vibrate and make noise. It’s a good idea to replace the tires and see if that fixes the problem. (it’s alot cheaper solution than checking the bearings) It’s always best to choose the cheapest and simplest option first. Best of luck!

    sounds like a tire issue u would have to have them road forced balanced this would deffinatly let u know if is a tire issue, while its at shop it isnt hard to check bearings usually shop charges up to an hour for diag for ur concern if u do this just explain ur concern to them bout u think u might have a bad wheel bearing or possibly a bad tire. this would be the best way then just to throw parts at it hopefully guessing right

    yes bad tire wear can cause vibration and noise,I have 3 ford escapes in my fleet they are all wheel drive, 2 of them chewed up tires from lack of rotation and moaned and groaned when driven one had tire rotations on time and were fine.wheel balance on a worn tire wont help things.you can balance a brick but that doesnt make it round.

  • Christopher:

    yea it could be either a shifted belt or cupping, Im guessing a belt though, you would probably notice the cupping at all speeds. A wheel balance would adjust the vibration somewhat but not the noise…
