    Where does the noise come from? Front/Rear? Left/Right? could be a couple of things, worn wheel bearing? brake bads not sitting correctly, loose suspension component. best thing would be to get it checked out

    if you want to trust quick fit lol, they cross threaded one of my hubs, all bolts, christ knows how, when they backed it out the workshop....donk, wheel falls off rips the wing off and smashes the disk up, i personally would never go there again, took months to get the money for the repairs aswell.
    id jack it up, take the wheels off and put it on axel stands, and have a look round for clean bits that stand out, have a good poke about you will probably find it and can repair it yourself!
    learning the hard way
