please help. metal on metal noise in tire.
today when i got off the highway coming home from work, i started to hear a pulsing squeak come from, i think, my front drivers side wheel. its a 2004 honda accord.
as back story, very recently, ive been experiencing periods of corse vibration in my front wheels when on the highway. it only happens occasionally, but when it does, i hear a vibration and feel it in the steering column. it gets louder and more corse when breaking. it only lasts for a few moments of driving, then vanishes.
so anyway, today the tire started squeaking. not solid, but more like a pulse. and what scared the **** out of me is when i put it in reverse to back out of my parking spot during a mid-drive mini-mart stop, it made a terrible grinding noise. could this be my dust/heat shield hitting the tire/rotor?
can anyone tell me if its safe to drive in the morning? assuming someone might have a guess as to what's wrong.
