    it wasnt the wheel bearings

    for about the past 6 months there has been an increase in humming/droning noise fro the rear of my car, but as i was only doing about 5 miles a week ive not been in a rush to sort it as thought it was wheel bearings and didnt have time to sort it.

    anyway today i decided to swap my wheels round so the wear more even etc, and suddenly the rear of the car is silent and now the front is droning , so it was the bloody tires not the bearings, which has pleased me lol,

    but looks like i have to replace the fronts now as im not putting up with that noise for long, teach me to buy cheap tyres lol, but i would never have thought they would make that much noise

    Common fault on VAG motors. Search for saw toothing of tyres.
