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!

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!
