Rubbing Rear tire

Hi,
I just put a set of 20" rims on my Caddie on a strait route, car rides smooth but when I make sharp turns the tire rubs and I can see were the tires in the rear are grabbing the inside of the rear wheel well, how can I solve this problem?, replace the rear shocks? or buy a air suspension system or is there a chaper way to do it, as I am in kuwait parts are very expensive here

Thanks for the help in advance

When turning steering wheel real sharp to the left or right it makes a rubbing sound in the Toyota Camry is that pk


Do you have standard rims and tires? Any variation there can cause rubbing.

Other possibilities

-one of your full lock steering stops has become loose and is allowing a tire to contact the body.

-the steering box is moving in its mountings, allowing too much lock

Hi, I have a toyota corolla 2003 that's making a metallic sound in the driver's side rear when turning right in reverse


Check your brake pads and or brake rotors. They may be bad or your rim on is rubbing on the shock absorber. Also check the lug nut's on your rims they could be loose to where the tire is rubbing against the brake rotors or shock absorber.

Good Luck!

When i turn sharp while reversing (out of the drive way) the front end makes a very loud noise, sort of like a rubbing or something grabbing. Also when in 4 HI or 4 Low i can bearly ever turn without the...


if you are turing sharp, your tires may be rubbing. a way to check is turn your tires all the way to one side and look under on both sides and then turn them the other way and do the same thing. while you are looking under the vehicle look for any shiny polished metal. this will be a sign that your tire are rubbing.

As far as your problems with 4hi and 4low, if it happens on dry pavement, that is actually normal. your four wheel drive system is set up to engage to assist with traction. your tire while doing so will be rotating at different speeds as needed to ensure proper traction is achieved.

Hit on right rear at wheel well, wheel pushed in at top what could be the problem?????thanksComment posted on May 11, 2200+9-


I don't understand your question fully (Hit?). If you were involved and a collision and your tire rubs on the fender, get the fender fixed ASAP! Tires can get peeled like a banana if they come into contact with any sharp piece of metal, and if its rubbing on the inner fender, then friction heat caused by this can cause the tire become weak in that area and subsequently blow out.... If that is not the problem, or case then her are more causes for tires rubbing...

Tires "Out of Alignment", non-factory rims and/or tires, wrong size,width, rim "off-set" etc., suspension coil springs and. or shocks (car sitting lower than usual), twisted chassis due to accident or other impacts

Will the tire size 235/40/R18 fit on my 2000 Oldsmobile Alero?


Take your Alero to any reputable tire dealer and they will assist you in hopes of selling you something. Just tell them you want an estimate and that you want to be sure you won't have a rubbing problem with this change.

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!

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
