My '55's right rear tire rubs when making right turns. It is in the location I had suspected some bad bondo work had been done in the quarter panel so I am guessing on the back side of the body there is a dent that the tire is rubbing against. Not sure what to do to repair it and not sure why it only rubs when making right turns and not on the straight away. Any suggestions?
Sounds like the wreck have pushed the inner wheel house in towards the trunk area. They bondo'd the 1/4, and left the dented wheel house..
You may be able to pull the wheel, and knock the wheel house back out far enuf to stop the rub...Or, Don's idea may apply. Time for some "detective work".....
