why do my tires squeal when i brake
2012 Dodge Challenger: my car was fine, no noises of any kind. Then I was rear ended at a stop light. Insurance looked at it and said bumper damage was all that was wrong. I new there was more than that because I drove it home after the wreck, so I had it towed to the shop that replaced by bumper. As I drove it slowly away from the shop it was making a noise like the brakes were metal to metal, mostly from the right front area. Also I heard a thumping coming from same area. As I slowly pressed on the breaks more scraping noise so I sped up still same noise. I noticed it was pulling a little to the right. When I pressed on the brakes hard, it turned to the LEFT bad! When they had called to tell me my car was ready the wowan had stated to me. your car is all finished and 2 of my mechanics have driven it and they both said that it's great!!!!! So I called them not 2 minutes after I had Driven away, when a man answered, I said are u one of the men that drove my black Challenger and said it was fixed?
And he replied NO, and placed me on hold. The woman answered as I drove next to a wall with the windows down and said does this sound like my car is fixed? She stated that she could very clearly hear the scraping, scqueeling noise! Took it back and the MANAGER DROVE MY CAR! 30 seconds later he came back and said very sarcastically YOU NEED BRAKES sruged his shoulders. I said 2 of ur guys said it was FIXED!!!!! He said the insurance adjuster said the only damage was the bumper that's all they paid for $701. 00 ( I had already given them the check) so I guess my question is. I know my car was not making any noises before that man rear ended me(he was also pulling a rented trailer filled with dirt) so am I crazy or could the reck be responsible for what's going on with my car????????
Shouldn't they have at least checked the brakes out to see if that's even the problem??? Please let me know what you think! I've been reading all your posts you are the first person that's sounds like to me you know what your talking about!!
Underinflated tires are probably the most common cause of squeals, usually occurring while making sharp turns. Though there are other warning signs that your tires need more air, squeaks or squeals are telltale symptoms. Underinflated tires perform poorly in inclement weather and lead to downgrades in traction, so these are squeals that you do not want to ignore. Air fills are usually as cheap as a quarter, though we recommend you invest in a if you do not already have one, just to make sure you are not overinflating your tires when you fill them up. Squealing and squeaking can also be a sign of worn down or uneven tire tread wear.
Over time and with high usage, tire tread starts to break down. Tread blocks will become dull or peel off the surface of your tire, resulting in uneven tread patterns and depths. Tire tread is what gives your vehicle the gripping strength as it meets the road, so when it starts to wear out, braking and turning becomes more difficult. This is when you will start to hear your tires squeal. Have your and at your to get the maximum tread life out of your tires. One of the less noticeable causes of squeaking and squealing in your tires could be loose wheel covers or lugs. You probably wont encounter this as often as an underinflated tire or uneven tread wear, but it could spell trouble. Hitting a nasty bump or edge in the road could jar the lugs or bolts of the wheel loose, creating awkward friction between the outer surface of the wheel and the tire.
Fixing this is usually simple, but your safest bet is to take it to your to have the lugs tightened and the wheels checked for any structural damage. There is always a possibility that the noises you hear are not coming from your tires, but in fact, a different part of your car. Squeaking noises can often be an indication that something might be wrong with your brakes - most commonly because of issues with the brake pads and rotor vibrations.
