    Have a ticking sound in the frong driver side tire area. Checked for rocks and nails, nothing. Tick stops once I reach 35 mph or higher. Have taken the tire
    off twice and nothing visibly wrong. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I had a weird noise once that turned out to be a rock stuck between the back of the rotor and the plate protecting that side. Rocks can hide in funny places.

    A good tire shop might be able to diagnose if you don't feel like taking it to Toyota.

    You have a mouse in the wheel. It's his feet pitter pattering around untill you go to fast that he cant keep up and then he's in for the ride of his life? LOL
    I think it would be a small rock that's stuck. You'll have to look real hard.

    i had a rock stuck in the vanes of the rotor once.. at higher speeds it would stay in place but at low speed it must have rolled around inside the rotor ... like NORCAL put it it was being hid by the backing plat.. I just pried it back with screw driver... blasted air in.. the tapped plate back with rubber mallet
