Leveling kit, nitto tg's and now a humming noise. Ideas?
Hey everyone. I have a 2012. Put the leveling kit on a few weeks ago. Last weekend I got the nittos put on. 27/65 18. Love the look and no rubbing. Now. I've noticed a humming noise starting at 43mph and at 44mph goes away! Not sure what it could be. It's not tire noise... Almost bearing like. I didn't notice the noise before the bigger nittos tho. I can feel slight vibes in the pedals and wheel when the humming is there. Doesn't go away if I'm accelerating or not. Only if I'm not going 43mph. It is slightly out of align since having the new tires installed. I have a feeling if I go to the dealer they will blame the leveling kit or tires and not cover it! Anyone ever experience this or have ideas!? Thanks in advance.

Correction. The noise may continue after 43 I just can't hear it as much. Still have no idea why new tires would immediately cause this sound Help!!!

Did you get this one figured out? It could just be a wheel/tire balance issue. Do you notice any vibration in addition to the humming?

Well. I'm currently deployed so can't drive the jeep... It was still humming at 45 but I do think its a balance and tire noise issue. I always notice the smallest things like that. I'm sure it's fine and I do plan I having it balanced soon after I get home. No complaints with it tho.
