Most likely your alignment is out of spec, you are running to wide of tires, or your wheels are aftermarket with a different offset. If your tires are too wide or the offset it wrong you can add wheel spacers to move the tires away from the wheelwell but make sure to do both fronts if you go this route. Otherwise you can take it to a shop and they can adjust the camber to allow the tire to not rub anymore.

Wheel rubbing frame when turning


On the bottom control arm you will find a block that a bolt from the back of the axle hits when on full lock. To do what you want extend this bolt out until the tyre does not hit the frame Adjust on both sides. Be aware that this will increase the turning circle of the vehicle. OF course with all this lift you will have extra problems with cv/ u joint angles and failures and you will suffer from excessive fuel consumption just to drive the big tyres But these options that you want have not been properly thought through as it involves unsafe vehicle modifications which will, bring you to the attention of the law enforcement agencies

Suggest you jack the truck up and support it on the frame. Then have someone get in and start and turn the wheel slowly in both directions. Also take a close look for rub signs in the wheel wells, if the tires are bigger than recommended, they could rub when turning tightly.

Hit curb while turning, tire rubs firewall


If you did not damage the frame, you more than likely damaged the lower control arm (a triangle shaped aluminum part which mounts to steering knuckle(tire side) and two bushing mounts (To frame) Check the condition against the undamaged side. If the control arm is damaged see if you can get one from a junk yard. If you do replace any part yourself Get an alignment immediately after repair.

Fiat Spider wide rims


Check the clearance with your current tires. Turn your wheels as far as they will go and measure the gap between the rim and frame. Then measure the inside offset from your regular rims and subtract that from the inside offset on the mags.Compare that to the gap between your current rim and frame. If it is the same or bigger, the new rims will likely hit.
The best way to know for sure is to mount one rim and turn the wheel and see what happens. Hope this helps.

Noise coming from front of car


It sounds exactly like a wheel bearing problem.The right side its seems would be the problem. When you turn right it puts more pressure on the bad bearing making it louder. I would suggest replacing both. If on is gone the other one isn't far off. Hope this helps

04 Expedition Front end Noise?


did you recently have new tires or rims put on? because it sounds like your tires are rubbing on your wheel well/mud flaps. if that's the case you'll either need to: downsize the tires/rims, remove the plastic covering the wheel well (not the body panel of course), or you could always get a lift haha :)....hope this helps ya out, good luck!
