I recently had two new tires put on my car a few months ago. I noticed immediately that the tires were much more noisy than the other brand (still have the other brand on the back of car). After living with the noise for awhile, I decided to go into my Nissan Dealership for a 90K service. I mentioned the noisy tires, and now all of a sudden they want to charge me $370 ish for a front left wheel bearing. The noise never started until I got the new tires. Do you think they might be trying to rip me off? Should I get a second opinion?? Thanks.

second opinions are always good to confirm the problem. as far as the tire, nothing they did could have cause the hub bearing failure by just changing the tires. Roy
