Wheel bearing problem or others ?

Hey how u all doin ~~

I had a whoppin, hummin sound only when drive from 60-65km speed on my 2000 honda EK then I did rotate the tired, after I rotate the tire the hummin noise starts at 40-45km speed.

I just brought a new Falken 912 tireds for the rear and spector tire(used abt 1 year only)at the front so shouldnt be the tire problem

I thought it was bad or banned rims in the begining(as my right side hit and went up to the curve one time, so then I brought a new sets of rim and the problem didnt go away.

Then, I thought then its the rear bearing so I preplace both rear bearing, I thought that's where the noise comes from, but after replace both rear bearing...the sound is still there....

Should I replace the front bearing as well but since I always thought the noise was from the rear..... but i might hear wrong.. I really wanted to stop spending money on the wrong part... (might be front wheel bearing or front tired or others ?)

needed help ~~ Thanks a lot

why dont you bring it into a shop to have them inspect it instead of guessing what could be wrong and replacing a bunch of parts without knowing for sure?

Yes, I agree...bring it to a shop and have somebody experienced diagnose the problem for you. Replacing all these parts by process of elimintaion will be really pricey in the end. Send me a PM if you're interested in getting it looked at.

Driving down the steet if the noise gets louder as your speed increases it's usually bearings. Another trick carefully swerve while driving right to left if the noise goes away swerving left and returns swerving right u know u have a problem on the left side and vise versa. If the noise is constant possibly in the drive train. However yes do get it looked at.

yup, I do that the same way to test wheel bearings as MarcG35, but if it's from bearings the noise will be there all the time and as you go faster the noise gets worse(never stops) so I suspect it might be just tire rod noise. swap tires with your friends' civic and to see if it's the same or not, this time no $ involved
good luck
