Any suggestions what might be causing a "rubbing noise" from the rear
wheel? Tyres are not new. The noise is definitely speed-related. It
doesn't alter whether brakes are applied or not (neither the hand
brake). A cursory inspection doesn't show anything visible that the
wheel might be rubbing against - was going to run it down to the local
kiwk fit and get them to stick on a ramp but just thought I'd seek
opinions/thoughts on here too.
Not 100% sure on the E39, but do you have 2 sets of brakes on the rear
disks? i.e. the pads for the normal foot brakes, and shoes for the
If so, does the noise change when the hand brake is applied?
