Question BF Goodrich road noise?

ive had some bf goodrichs 30x9.5 since about the end of july and they've been great but recently they've been making a lot of road noise especially the front drivers side one. it sounds like somthing is stuck on it and just constantly makes a bump bump....bump bump noise has anyone else had this problem and is there anything to do? (ive already rotated the tires from front to back and back to front)

When you rotated your tires was the noise still coming from the front drivers?

what kind of BFG's do you have? Did you hit something to throw the wheel out of round or anything?

Is the ride any worse than before? Like has it gotten rougher or anything to that effect... If it has, check your tread to see if the offending tire is chopping out.. Depending on how they rotated them pattern-wise, that may explain why the other tires shut-up and this one is still making noise.
As for the rusty center cap, try some Rust-Eater, some WD-40, and some 0000 steel wool - in that order. If it's surface rust, those sprays and some scrubbing with the S-W should take care of it.

If the tire were out of round you'd feel it in the steering wheel and throughout the entire vehicle. You can check around the sidewall on the inside and outside and see if there's any bubbles. The wheel should be fine, in order to mess up the rim hitting something you'd have to annihilated/bubble the tire first due to the amount of sidewall

well unless you hit them at like 40 or 50mph... i don't think you have to worry.. im talking about kinda fast hitting a solid object... something is out of whack on your vehicle.. maybe you lost a wheel weight or something.. prob should just go check for them and maybe get it rebalanced..

If you take that wheel/tire and move it does the sound/vibe move with it?
