What speed does the noise start? Tire cupping is very common on those cars , that and possible wheel bearing noise. Does the noise change with vehicle speed or engine speed ? - ziptie12
hi. i have same problem before. i haved it check and the problem is the wheel alignment, wheel balancing and loose racker arm on the steering. check your tire as well poor thread of tires mainly cause it to dis align your wheel. - jepoy1
My 02 Civic is doing this now and I will be taking it to the shop to have it looked at. However, I had a Kia that had this issue and it was the fuel pump. I have an excellent mechanic and he figured it out the first time around, no wasting my time or money. - beachiekeen
