Noise while driving.... flat spot on tire???
Lately, I've been hearing a sound while driving around 40-50mph. Sounds like a 'whoping' noise and I think it's from the tires.
I've started noticing the noise ever since I came back from vacation over a week ago. I was gone for a week.
My main question is, will a flat spot develop if the car has been left parked for at least a week?
They are kumho tires and my only experience with kumho is that they do develop flat spots as I drove a car that sat in my driveway for 6 months. That was my very first car and so I was a total car noob. The tire lasted me about 7 months before the tread on the kumho ripped off but did not blow out.
Another question... what tire pressure do you run your tires at?
