    Rear end whine - bearings?

    My A4 gained a new noise today, a definate whine from the back end. It starts at about 20mph, gets louder up to 65mph, then eases off as road roar increases.

    The tyres on the back are new Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3s. They have only done 2000 miles, but all of this mileage is over the last 3 weeks.

    I'm thinking rear wheel bearings. Thing is, this noise wasn't there yesterday, and it was first thing today.

    Any other possibilities?

    Cheers

    Id say get your wheels barings checked, could even have a go yourself by jacking it up and seeing if there is slight play in any of the wheels!

    Will get it booked in, the weird bit is the speed the noise started, yesterday, nothing, today a loud whine. Very odd!
