    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?

    stephan, thats why I don't take my truck to a tire store, I just take the wheels to have new tires mounted. When I was a SnapOn dealer some of the things I saw was just plain scary.

    yep 10-4. I always mount my own tires too. Every time I see a thread like this it reminds me of Tennessee Griz & how the tire store rammed his wheels on with an impact wrench & warped his brake drums. It happens a lot & the tires stores just don't know any better
