Hub makes weird popping noise?

So when I'm riding my bike, and its up right, like 90 degrees off the ground. When I lean my bike so its about 60 degrees off the ground, I hear this soft popping sound in my hub. It happens just about every time I lean on both sides. I took my wheel off a week ago and the axles were loose (female bolts but the bolts weren't loose it the part the bolt screws in to). I tightened it up with my hands then put the wheel back up, tightening the female bolts with a socket wrench. Could that be why its making the popping noise? If not, has anyone else had this happen and explain what you did to stop it? Also, I sometimes feel weird stuff in my pedals when I pedal, and feel a strange grinding feeling when I pull my brakes.

Spokes may be hella loose and crackling as it buckles a little

I seek progression, not perfection.

Just checked, my spokes are all tight. Its not a crackling sound, just like a low muffled popping sound.

Your hubs fucked. Something broke. But if it still rolls, ride it.

Do you have an adapter between your Sprocket and Cranks? If not that may be the problem (Or possibly not, depending on what Cranks and Sprocket you have). Also if you bought a very cheap Sprocket then it is possible that the manufacturing tolerance is large enough for it to be send out misshaped enough to effect the chain.

What do you mean by adaptor?

It goes between the sprocket and spindle so you can fit a 22mm sprocket onto 19mm cranks

Or a 23.8mm (15/16") Sprocket on to a 19 or 22mm spindle.
