You may have too large a tire on the back for the bike. However, if the derailleur hanger is bent, this could also cause the problem. Flip your bike over onto the bars and seat and make sure the derailleur alignment is good (vertically and longitudinally straight). If the derailleur hanger is straight, then you will have to use a narrower tire in the back.

Noise coming from the rear of the car as result of changed rear tyres.

Did you fit tyres of the same size as were removed, if not tyre could be rubbing on inner guard or suspension.
Did you use the same rims as you removed, if not the rim offset may be wrong and rubbing on the brake or suspension.
Remove wheels and look for rub marks.

Noisy rear wheel

Sounds like a seperation in tire. Inspect outer tread if nothing look for places around tire that not smoothe.

You need to remove the exhaust first,then put a motorcycle liftt under the bike,lift it to just take off the rear wheel from the floor,remove the caliper and let it hang on the side,then loosen the axle nut and remove the axle then the belt or the chain.Voila!!! your wheel is now ready to swap with the new tyre.

How do you align the wheels on a ktm 660 smc

Place the bikes rear on a paddock stand or have someone hold it upright for you.
Place two lengths of straight edged angle iron or wood, at least a foot longer that the wheel base of the bike on the ground, one either side of the rear tyre. The front wheel must be central. After adjusting the chain tension push the straight edges up against the rear tyre and pull/push the otherside of the axle until the front wheel is in line with the central place between the straight edges.

Jaguar x type 19" alloy wheel upgrade but rear wheels rub on arch

I really don't think you will be able to use those rims and tires, probably the biggest is going to be 18" wheels. The 8.5" rim is too wide. An 18" came as the stock size on the sport package for the Jag, it's 7.5 wide. I don't think who sold them to you really knew if they would fit or not. Without wheel spaces and raising the suspension, I don't think they'll work on the car.

Rear tyre upsizing

Yes you can go to a 100/90/18 on the rear, if you are sure it wont rub on anything. This will not create any problems with stability, in fact may improve the handling of your bike. Will not affect the life of the chain.

Check the wheel bearings. The wheel should not move from left to right. Also take the bike and get the rear wheel in the air on a jack and take hold of the wheel on top and on bottom and see if you can move the wheel while you push the top and pull the bottom repeatably
