Thread: HELP Odd wheel "Whistle" sound

    Default HELP Odd wheel "Whistle" sound

    First off, Hi. Sorry if this is in the wrong thread.
    second off, I drive a 2005 subaru STI

    the issue is, While moving i hear a whistle from my tires (or brakes/rotors maybe ???). it doesn't get louder, only faster. Braking does not effect the noise. Again, only hear it while moving.

    any ideas??

    Wheel bearing?

    When negotiations fail, escalate.

    Any vibration in the steering wheel?

    Probably wheel bearing.

    I've never heard someone describe a failing wheel bearing as a "whistle" before. lol

    had this on a previous car, it made more of a loud scraping noise, not faint squealing or whistling like im experiencing
