Post Hub Bearings/Feathered Tires Bad Sound.

I have noticed lately, when I come to a stop I hear a Woooo...woooo ... woo .woo woo woo sound.. I took it to my mechanic and he said it was the wheel bearings. He suggested that I take it to the dealer as it should be covered.

The dealer said they would have to determine the problem (and charge me to do so) and suggested that it was my tires feathering. They even put front rims from another G35 and test drove it.

Outcome: The HUB bearings were bad and they are COVERED by the powertrain warranty. They told me some of the sound was the tires and I should get new ones. I told them I would pass for now. They are also doing some side air bag recall. I do not owe a penny. They gave me an Altima loaner until tomorrow. (This thing sucks compared to my car.. we really are spoiled.)

Hope this info helps somebody!

I had this sound real bad when i first had my car (used) before the tires were completely bad. Once i replaced the tires it was gone but now my new tires have worn and the sound is back. I have also just replaced my bearings as well....fucking tire feathering FTL.

I have that exact same sound too. plus the occasional wurr wurr when i drive about 35-40mph. Its been driving me nuts but i think its just my cheap federal tires. How do you check and see if you need new bearings?

I just think i need new tires becuz my cheapo tires are feathered to hell.

The noise was super terrible with goodyear eagle f1's i had, ended up wearing the insides completely down to the belts. I checked the wheel bearing, thinking thats what it was, but they were fine. I replaced the tires with some General SHP's and the sound was completely eliminated.... for the first few thousand miles, now i can slowly hear it coming back.

Your wheel bearing may have been bad (doubt it), but the true noise is from the stupid setup on the front suspension that wears tires to hell. Next time i replace the fronts, i'm going with a non staggered setup so i can rotate them.

I KNEW somebody was going to post that video clip. When I was typing out the thread.. I could hear that black dude making that sound. I am picking up my car tonight. I will post the outcome on my 45 min drive back. My car also had a wurr sound at around 40mph.

I did a search and it was suggested to change the camber as close to 0 as possible BUT you will sacrifice some handling of your car.

I got my car back after they put in new hub bearings under warranty. The tires are still very loud. Thanks for the help and input guys!

I THINK not know they only way to get rid of this would be to get a front camber kit so you can adjust the right camber correctly, right? I have the same problem and the noise is insanely loud on mine all my friends think the car is falling apart when they drive with me haha.

I don't remember where but an Infiniti tech. posted on here that our stock camber can be adjusted to zero and the problem will go away but with noticeable difference in performance. I just as well deal with the sound until my tires are worn. They look almost new.
