One tire louder than other 3

Put a set of 285 duratracs from my old truck onto my new jeep. 3 tires sound normal. One is very loud. I switched it to other side to make sure. I can hear the treads when cruising slow in first then it just hums. Tire has no visable warping or excessive wear. Theyre sitting at 11-12/32nds. About 65%. Didnt make this noise on my truck.. could it be tire shop didnt balance the one tire properly?

They hold air, Steady at 32-35psi. No vibrations or wobble. Just one loud flappy sounding tire

Quirky tire?

I really agree with folks saying "get a new one and use ol' floppy for a spare". When you do check out the noisy tire and see if there are any irregularities on the inside. I had one with structural separation growing from the inside out. It drove me nuts 'till I felt the inside just wasn't right; more a feel than see thing.... still held air good...just got quirky. Drive safe, comfortable and emotionally at ease!

Actually , I'm rather deaf , so I don't hear tire noises . My main concern was the Danger of driving a new Jeep with a used Defective tire , which could contribute to an Accident . I wanted to emphasize putting the spare on for Safety reasons . I tried to give a humorous nudge in that direction , my friend .

Oh ive experienced an old mt completley blow on the highway. Dragged me over 4 lanes. If i was close to a car or meridian would have been done. But the tire was good on my truck.. these ones that blew were ancient and garbage. The ones on now are in good shape still.

Wondering if a slightly unbalanced tire could be noisier.

Heres the tire that sounds overly "tready"



Some lugs have the sand still on them. Some lugs are worn clean. In a pattern it seems. Weird. Why? Anybody? Theyre in good shape still!

That is tire scalloping.
Bad shocks/struts are usually the main contributor. Bad alignment possibly.
