2010 Traverse Wheel noise

Hi,

New to forum so this is my first post.
Just traded our 2005 Trailblazer for an 2010 Traverse LT2 with 8,000 miles.
Love the vehicle but noticed a noise from right front on test drive which sounded like a tire noise.
The salesperson atributed it to aggresive tires and said it was nothing.
After taking delivery the noise sounds like more of a wheel bearing.
The noise starts as soon as you start moving and changes pitch if you turn wheel.
Anyone else have same problem.
Saw one other post relating to same issue which dealer told owner was normal to Traverse.
Have bumper to bumper warranty for 48/48 so it's going back this week.
Having driven other 2010s before purchasing this one I know it's not a nature of the beast.

Do you have the 255/65/18's Forterras? When they get a few miles on them they get loud

Thanks for your reply.
Yes it has forteras.
Can't believe after 8,000 miles tire would make that racket.
Tire wear is even with no scalloping.
Took back to dealer today we'll see what they say.
Thanks Again

Re: 2010 Traverse Wheel noise

You may just have a bad wheel have them rotate the tires and see if the sound moves.

If it does get them to replace that tire. Sometimes they are defective.

I bought a set of new tires once and had a bad one only good year noticed it and let me take the car but ordered a new on and put it on the next day.

Re: 2010 Traverse Wheel noise

Or if you have a spare under your Traverse, throw that on. Eliminate the culprit all together. Sometimes its hard to tell if a sound moves or not. Just a thought.

Re: 2010 Traverse Wheel noise

if you do move tires around- make sure you torque down the lug nuts to the proper ft/lbs- or else youll soon get warped rotors

Yes, the radial belts within the tire have been known to "shift", thereby causing noise and tire problem.

Re: 2010 Traverse Wheel noise

Thanks for all the suggestions.
Dealer just called they are rotating tires to see if noise moves from front to rear.
If noise remains I am guessing wheel bearing.
Was talking to a friend who's brother has an equinox it's gone thru 3 bearings in 50k.
Hopefully just a bad tire.

well tire rotation made no difference
they change r/f wheel bearing and noise remains
they now say it is normal for awd models and that it's from transfer case
tech said he's driven several 2010s on lot wth comparable milage and they all have same noise
going to drive one tommorow to verify
chevy is gotta be getting alot of complaints if this is case

Here's a question for the service manager / service director. If this noise is a "normal" condition, why did they waste everyones' time rotating tires and replacing a wheel bearing. The manager needs to call GM technical assistance.
