    I would bet that the problem is the brakes are coverd in Brake dust causing the noise. since a 20in rim isnt even close to the rotor.

    I forgot to mention this, it only makes the noise when i turn to the left.

    Then it sounds more like they are rubbing on a suspension component. the only easy way to find out where they are rubbing is to take the wheel off and see if there is a clean mark on a suspension part. that will let you know what is rubbing where.

    x2 i agree take a good look behind the tires with wheel turned and should see clearly where the rubbing is at.

    X3, sounds like suspension rubbing. The backspacing is most likely to deep.
