Hi, rear wheels are basically the same as front wheels except now you have some sort of drive like a chain, belt, or shaft. Simply remove the axle nut, loosen any pinch bolts and pull the axle out. On shaft drives and some chain drives the wheel will pull loose from the drive and come off leaving the drive portion attached to the swing arm. On others you have to remove the chain or push the wheel far enough forward to slip the chain off the sprocket. Now the wheel should come off to the rear and slip past the fender, at least sometimes it does.....

Something is hitting a component as the rear wheel turns one revolution. Inspect the rear tires/wheel for a foreign object that had lodged into the tire or wheel. If the noise is constant, a nut or bolt connection had loosened. Re-tighten the connection with pliers or an adjustable wrench.

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
