    i have a 94 gmc k1500 and when its going the back tires make a noise like something hits a certian point of the wheel everytime it is hit kinda like putting a baseball card in a bike tire. i just had the brakes and the drums redone. i dont kno if i explained it well enough but does any one have any ideas why it does that? any help would be appreciated. thanks :redbounce

    JET just pop of the rear drums and take a look. Might have a loose or broken part. Or take it back to the brake shop that did the work and have them take a look. Shop should take a look for free.....

    If it is very consistent and follows your speed it may just be a rock stuck in the tread, or a screw in the tire. You might check for a brake cable or other item dangling near and hitting the driveshaft too.

    The drum might need to be turned.

    Sounds like a cracked drum to me.Remove them both and give them a drop on a concrete floor open end first from about waist high,you should hear a nice metalic twang sound,a dull thud says its cracked.Try it out and repost

    out of round drum definately. Even if it is new. damn cheap foriegn parts. rabestos is the only quality part ,but twice as expensive.

    drum

    maybe i dunno.. me and my father took of the drums off ourselves before we went to get them fixed and one of the pads broke in two when we took it off. the guy turned the drums when he put new pads on. we took the drums off originally to see if that was making the news but even after new brakes it still makes noise

    0k this is most likely a stupid question but are these tires studded? if so i'd inspect the tire to look for missing or grossly worn studs. an irregular stud patter could cause a "weird" fluttering noise. i don't know about Ur experience but if this is your first set of studded tire it just may be the sound the studs make on the dry pavement sounds like there is a buncha rocks in the tire. umm ok have you figured out if it makes the same sound in reverse? sry i just havta get back to the basics to think about this sometime ppl(including me, over think stuff).

    hope some of this may help
