Thoughts/advice on Tyre squeel ?

Recommended Posts

My car has started squeeling like hell on low speed manouvre and when braking ?

 

You can throw into a bend and nothing, do a U-turn and it squeels like hell. It also starts squeeling when braking in a straight line (slowing to traffic lights etc).

 

The tyres have done around 40k and show little signs of wear, good tread etc. Tyre pressures at recommended 32psi.

 

Any suggestions as to what is doing this and how to stop it ? (other than changing the tyres)

 

Thanks

OK, then it seems a visit to a place that does tracking....

You bumped any curbs lately or pot holes..?

Well you know how Thai roads are, perfect one minute next like a mortar practice range........so yeah, have hit a few. Guess I'll see if theres a tyre place with tracking equipment around.

Thanks to those that answered.

Are you sure it is not worn out brake pads?

Brake pads dont sqeel just because you are turning the vehicle slowly, I also think after 45 yrs driving I know the difference between pads or metal on metal or rubber on the road.

Polymer degradation is a change in the properties—tensile strength, color, shape, etc.—of a polymer or polymer-based product under the influence of one or more environmental factors such as heat, light or chemicals such as acids, alkalis and some salts.

My Bridge/Duelers have squealed from new not all the time but sometimes braking, cornering & accelerating depends how fast I'm going even with 30psi front and 40psi rear, same when no load and letting rear to 30psi, it don't bother me.

If I were you I would take with a pinch of salt all the info or the advice you have received so far.

 

Happens every year around this time, I have been getting it for years. More than likely nothing to do with tyres or pressure or as some suggest tracking. It's due to the lack of rain and build up of rubber and other rubbish on the roads.

 

You will find if you open your windows that all the 4 tyre will squeal at curtain/odd times. Even more pronounced on a 2 wheel drive from front wheels. To a lesser extent with 4x4. On the odd occasion I'm in 4x4 I seldom get any squeal.

 

Once it has rained you will find that the squealing will stop. Just take care with the first bit of rain as the roads will be like glass.

 

I see yet again that the GREAT In Know it all T/A has put confused on one of my posts. I would be pleased if the OP will post again to let me know if I'm correct.

Bridgestone tires are second rate in my opinion. Their golf balls are ok.

Michelin much better tires I bet that would solve the problem but will cost you.

Well lets see if I'm correct and you are wrong yet again. Once the OP has had the first bit of rain he will find that the squealing will stop.

 

If you got out more and did a bit of driving instead of sitting on your comp: all day 24/7 you might find things out.

 

Oh and while I'm at it you will seldom find you get squealing on a front wheel drive. It's more pronounced with 2 wheel rear drive.

 

I knew this from my racing days years ago. If you had done a bit of racing and not just posing in your lumps you would also know this.

I have had it on Bridgestone and Firestone as well as the new Dunlop I have fitted now. Nothing to do with tyres please read my posts.
