    Default Wheel noise

    I just purchased a 2006 Monterey Red Corvette and I just noticed while making a sharp turn to the right I hear a noise and have no idea why! The car has approximately 24,000 miles on the odometer.

    Maybe: Cold weather, wide front tires, cold pavement = popping, creaking noise as the front tires bite and break loose during tight turns at slow speeds while cold.
    One of the "benefits" of Vette ownership and Super High Performance Summer Tires. Btw, what tires are on your Vette?

    Does it make the same noise with left turns at low speeds?

    Good point. Rear Diff noises were an issue with early C6s. My 2006 needed new posi lube also when it was still relatively new - had forgotten about that.
