a cupped or feather-edged tire can cause this as can a broken belt or an aggressive tread pattern

Hey bro,

Also, an out of round tire can make the whump whump whump sound on the highway, as can a tire that is out of balance. Hope this helps. Take care. You guys rock! Dave

In addition to the reasons listed above, some tires are just plain noisey. Others start off quiet but get noisier as they wear down.

I have a 77 F250 with some 39.5" Boggers on it. My girlfriend and I joke that it's the quietest and loudest vehicle I own. When it's just sitting there idleing, it's whisper quiet. When it's going down the highway at 65 mph, it's the loudest. :lol: Yes, I'm easily ammused...


Have a good day!
