walmart just repaired tire for me. now when i drive the car there is a loud thumping sound. what could cause this?
my tire had a slow leak, i took it to walmart to be repaired. it was fine when i took it there. after the tire was repaired i drove down the parking lot and heard a loud thumping noise that was not there when i took it in. walmart says they don't know what it is. anyone have any ideas?
Now you must seek a real car technician. demonstrate the issue, have them inspect and find the cause. i do not recommend driving far like that. Get out and look at the area where the sound eminates from. If it were on the steering axle you could turn, advance forward a few inches and repeat till you inspected the tire all the way around, then do the other side. Check the pressures in the others. It could be a mudflap ? a foreign object ? a failed tire casing ? loose parts ?
It could be the wheel cover has brake dust trapped between the covers centering attachment parts even. If your covers pull off, drive without it and with it to isolate.
