Form the past days my car is having an issue when I turn the steering wheel (left to right) at the start point.and the same sound (grinding type) dissapear while I am on the continuous run.just a week ago I have replaced the new alloy wheel and tyre of car, from then to now I am getting the same sound.

one more thing the earlier alloy wheel was 16 in and the new one which I replaced is 17 inch with the tyre. does it matters to the steering wheel sound..?

Please suggest.

  • Did you change all 4 wheels from 16 to 17 inch? If not, which wheel did you change?

Your rubber is grinding against the front wheel well liner - there is a plastic area there your tire grinds against on full lock because you upsized your wheels.

Solution - take a heat gun and warm up the area where the tire grinds, then push it out a bit. Don't overheat as it easily melts.
