    Default Front Driver Sides Squeaks like a Son of ..........

    Hey Guys,
    So i am dumbfounded....... Last week i put on some new rims on my truck. 22 inch 6 x 5.5. No problems really up until a couple days ago. I started to get a squeak when i was driving. Not too loud but could definately hear it. Over the past two days it has gotten considerably worse. It is sooo loud, louder than my exhaust !!! I want people to look at my truck but not because of the sound it makes.

    What do you guys think it might be? Rock stuck somewhere? Gets louder when i brake but even when im just driving its still squeaking. What do you guys think?

    Could be a rock stuck in the brake caliper since it sounds louder when you apply the brakes, but I would definitely re-check the wheel torque since this started right after you installed the new wheels. I would also check for interference between the wheels & body & suspension parts since the wheels are larger

    Torque wrench? That's one of those big air guns the tire stores use to ram the lug nuts on, isn't it?
