Tire Noise, balance, rotating and alignment

Hi Guys,

Last time I went to get my tires aligned, my front tire on the drivers side got super loud. Also, they inflated my tires to 40 pounds which was way too much and I was bouncing around all over the place. I deflated them to 24 psi and it was much better.
Do they need to inflate tires when they do a balance, alignment and rotation?

Also, if I swap out that noisy tire for the spare on the back, will that noise go away? None of my tires sound like it and it's super loud...its sounds like a whomp whomp whomp where as my other tires just sound like a constant swoosh. For reference I have the same duratrac tires as most people have here.

Thanks in advance, Friendly Jeepers!
-Holli

many or most tire shops use the placard on the door for psi. figure most use stupid pencil style gauges that can be off by at least 10% so that probably explains the 40psi. your tire sounds out of balance or out of round. take it back and have it rebalanced.

Most states have laws requiring most auto repair/services establishments to check and fill the tires according to the door sticker. You will need to check yours after each service.

Ah. I bet that's it. When I first got the tires at the specialty shop, they did the same thing. Thanks!

I'm not sure I would take it back to that shop. Over inflating a tire can be really bad for a vehicle and throw everything off.
