First time poster, long time listener. I had new 275/55r20 BFG A/T KOs installed on my Defender X SE last week and am experiencing a loud left front tire, which grows louder at 20 mph and louder when braking.

For background, I installed the 1.5" PR lift rods before I installed the tires, then removed the lift once I returned back home from the installation. The next day, I returned to the tire shop, who reviewed the tires and even swapped the spare in for the left front tire to ensure it wasn't the tires. Not a balancing issue.

My local mechanic didn't have the tools to complete an alignment, however told me that he noticed a dry spot on the front left rotor, which could be causing the tire "whirl" noise. My next step is the LR stealership, who is 3 weeks out from the next available appointment..

Anyone out there experience anything similar? Thoughts? Appreciate your feedback and excited about the forum.

That's exactly how they all should look from the factory, ready for the trail not the mall.
