after i let discount "fix a flat" on one of my tires, i have noticed a humming from one or more of my tires/wheels. you can hear the rotation of the tire. esp wheni turn slightly in one direction, it becomes much louder. any ideas please? i have checked all the tread for rocks stuck in it.... nothing....

Your description sounds like a wheel bearing is going bad. When it makes the noise while turning, does it do it turning both directions or just one?

is it not coming from one side...whip your car around in a parking lot a few times or when you slightly turn on when going 45+ you should be able to tell
