I have a nbs 6+3+TB Crank with 38.5 sx's. When im ridin about 15-20 i can hear an annoying rattle like something is loose and vibrating. Could it be the bearings, brakes, or does the front end need lube?

mine does that too.. i can't figure it out. Mine makes more of a vibrating noise. I always thought it was tire/wheel vibration because my tires haven't been balanced since God knows when. It seems to be worse right after my truck has been sitting for a while, like the tires aren't warmed up yet?? I dunno. I hope it's not a big deal

who knows, running those big tires on ifs tears shit apart fast, Try lubing everything and see if it helps. If not start checking things one by one, trying to create the problem at slow speeds so you can see where its commign from etc...

i had a vibrating/rattling noise also....found out my brake calipers were extremely loose. a way to troubleshoot the brakes like that....at low speeds, they will rattle...esp if you are goin over any bumps. if it vibrates at that point....hit the brakes and see if it stops. when i had my foot on the brakes...it didnt rattle.
