My dad who is a mechanic did the pinch weld mod and all rubbing is gone at slow speeds. But at those faster tight turns there is still a lot of rubbing. It makes an awful sound too I cringe every time I here it because at first we cut the plastic thinking that would help but after it just rubbed on the metal and sounds much worse. It almost sounds like abs breaks or traction control coming on. So my question is, is that definitely my tires or could it be something else? Why would it not rub at full lock while parking?
Mine rubs and does the same traction control mess up. It is rubbing on the corner of the bumper is all.
