Q: Grinding noise when making a hard turn left or right

asked by on

Tire sounds like it's rubbing against something

My car has 85000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If the noise is occurring when turning, then it may be rubbing. If it has the factory wheels and tires, it may be due to part of the wheel well coming loose. I usually get the vehicle in the air and inspect for shinny spots on the bumper, fender, and inside of the fender well. Anything shinny indicates that there is rubbing going on. If there is nothing found, then it may be a tire that is not wearing smoothly. If you need to have this rubbing noise looked at, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose this turning issue.
