Why does my car make a tire rubbing sound but not all the time?

Answer

Your tire may be close to something and only rubs when parts are moving and flexing. I had a customer once who had oversized tires and the tire would rub on the mudflap when she turned a corner. I recommend checking all your tire clearances.
