I had the rear brake wheel cylinders replaced and now the car is very loud in the back. Sounds like I have big tires on it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Check the wheel bearing adjustment. Could be too loose!

Watch my video on noisy wheel bearing... you might have to turn the volume up a bit.

If one side is noisier than the other, then that bearing (2 actually) need to be replaced.

Take it to a shop. I can't hear the noise or test drive the car.

It was a logical guess that the bearing was noisy.

Something was not done correctly then.
