    Hey guys --

    I have an '07 Tacoma, 38k miles on it. Bigger tires. While driving, I here a whoop whoop noise that speeds up the faster I go. I thought it was my tires but apparently it's coming from the right side. One friend said it could be the hub going out. Is this accurate of a hub failing, and, should that be under warranty at 38k miles?

    Does it go away after you've been driving for awhile? My first thought is that the tires could be developing flat spots while parked, and those would go away after 10-20 minutes of driving when the tires warm up.

    Figure I'd start with the easy/free stuff first and then start considering possible doom and gloom. :)

    If it speeds up as you speed up, check for rocks or something stuck in your tire. Also check the inside of your rims for mud.

    i think mine does a similar sound but it's more think a thump, thought it was limited to the front right but have also heard it from the front left

    happens several times during my 1 hour drive to work at highway speeds

    Ill save you the trouble. Its the wheel bearings. Whats causing the noise is the wheel bearing seal broke, letting in some sand or whatever. They are now trapped and rubbing causing the bearing itself to shudder and breakdown.

    From the time you hear the noise, you have a several thousand miles to not worry. Then another few thousand to use the radio volume fix. Then get it fixed.

    Mine was out of warranty, cost $1200 at Toyota Canada for just one rear to be done :mad: thats why I didn't get my fronts done even thought they recommended them.

    If your truck is still under power train warranty you should be fine.

    sounds like a wheel bearing... i had both of mine go out i found the best way to tell if the bearings are bad is if you jack up the truck and shake the wheel vertically there shouldnt be any play in it... when mine when completely bad it messed up the abs sensor and i lost my brakes completely... i recommend fixing it asap... the dealer i went to fixed it under warranty i had probably 45000 miles on it and i have a 6 inch lift with 35s... its all about that powertrain warranty

    does the whoop noise go away when you engage 4WD?
