Hello all, I will probably be getting new tires for my pilot soon, and I think the tires are out of round because they sound like truck tires on the highway. My concern is that the vibration gets worse when I am braking. The steering wheel is not shaking, as if it were warped rotors.

Will out of round tires cause worse vibration when I am braking?

Out of round tires will vibrate constantly, more noticeable at higher speeds. How's the alignment? Are your tires cupped?

Yes, check that. Also your bearings by veering suddenly and sharply (but safely) and listen if the noise becomes more intense.

If the vibration gets worse when braking the rotors may be warped. Inspect all four tires for any unusual wear patterns from either an alignment or balance issue. As mentioned if the tires have flat spots or are out-of-round the vibration would be noticeable all the time.

The vibration/noise is there all the time(sounds like truck tires also). But my fear is the warped rotors could be a issue.

As I've mentioned, this set of Centric rotors and pads has made all my PIlot's brake shortcomings go away, and over a year later they still feel great.
