    Default Strange spinning tire sound during launch acceleration

    Hi guys recently I noticed this strange spinning tire sound when I do first/second gear launches. My tires was changed last year so there's no reason that its due to worn out and no traction, the spinning tire sound is becoming more apparent unlike before. When I do a hard launch I noticed my tires spins even though I have a new tires, this happen on the front wheels only can someone help me figure out whats going on? its because of this spinning I cant enjoy my driving to the fullest feels like im driving a corolla lol thanks.

    Do you have a manual or automatic transmission?

    If manual, perhaps your clutch has worn causing it to engage at a different point which you may not be able to adjust to when driving hard.

    Have you checked the brake/clutch or transmission fluid?

    Does this happen only when cold or all the time?

    I was going to answer differently, but then I re-read your post.

    Its auto transmission and it happens in hot and cold weather.

    @Aitch: Its Michelin Defender all season tire I just buy from cosco
    @ Johns 08 3 GT: All season just bought it last year ago and to my horror I check the tire tread for uneven wear and confirmed they have both forming from the inner side (front tires only). I noticed the driver side tires has more uneven wear than the passenger side photos is provided.
    Driver side

    Passenger side


    @Noisy Crow: Sorry my grammar is not good I know its a funny question.
    @m_bisson:
    @ Booter22: The weird thing is that im only launching softly and still can hear that metallic spinning sound coming from my tire or axle I dunno could it be loose bearings, bad control arm but when I tried to launch it real hard (I can launch like racer before as I got JDM PSM and JDM RRM for my mods and beat the $%@$ out of honda ricers ) the metallic spinning sound is more prominent and the tire is spinning hard like im on slippery Icy road.
    @pwdunmore: My racing days are over I finally went back to OEM motor mounts for smooth lolcamry ride my thread can be seen here

    From the pictures you've posted, looks like your alignment is off and it's causing your chirping tire noises.

    It's always good to check your air pressure at least once a week and to inspect your tires when filling up at the Gas station.

    Sometimes you catch alignment issues before they ruin your tires.

    Harder than most of us can imagine.

    OP, get your alignment check out, you shouldn't need tires so often.

    Unless, you are living life a quarter mile at a time.

    Good luck.
