Help, please.
« on: September 15, 2017, 07:42:56 PM »
I have a very annoying noise. I not it after I got my new tires. I was in the hospital when Camden took it to discount for the tires. She had the windows up and the ac on so I don't know if it was present prior to the tire installation. It's a very loud scrubbing sound that appears to be in direct relation with tire rotation, not RPMs. I pulled all 4 tires and found nothing out of sorts. I'm afraid I'm tearing up or damaging something. I'm scared to keep driving it. Would someone please help?

Do you have those wheel weights they tape/stick on the inside of rim ?
If yes.....they are probably scrubbing a little......
Look @ your front tire's wheel weights for scratches/shavings

I do have them.  I pulled all 4 wheels and didn't see any evidence of rubbing on the inside of the wheels. I could pull them again now that's it's been a couple days. If that's the culprit, the weights would contact the shield behind the rotor?

I'm on duty through Sunday, off time is 1900 if I get off on time. I'll be around Monday afternoon and early evening if that works?

Pulled the drivers front and behold, the weights were double stacked and rubbing the caliper. Wasn't evident before. What a relief.

Glad you figured it out, is the balance off now that you removed weights?
