Drivers tire sticking out and noise

Two weeks ago I took my truck into dealership for prepaid oil change. They ended up doing tire rotation at same time, apparently it was part of the package.

About a week ago I started to hear a rubbing sound when I hit bumps. Usually on the downward motion.

Last couple of days the noise has been louder and more frequent. It also lasts longer after hitting the bump. It sounds almost like a tire rubbing on mudflaps or something. The is a slight vibration now too .....

When I got home from work today I looked at the front tires and noted the passenger tire essentially flush with the side of truck (normal) but the drivers side tire is about 2-3 cm out from the side of the truck. I am unsure how long its been like this as is first time I thought to look.

I checked the lugs, they appear fine.

I drive about 1500km a week in the truck and hoping its still safe to drive !!!


Any suggestions about what MAY be wrong ?

Ya, I wouldn't be driving like that. Wheel bearing assembly coming apart? Did someone back the nut off by accident? Jack it up and it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

Don't drive it until you find the problem. Check the front end out, first.

+1 on checking the axle / spindle nut

it could also be a bad ball joint that's slowly comeing apart or the bushings where the control arms attach to the frame

either should be visiablely distorted from the opposite side if bad enough to cause the wheel to hang outta the fender

lube technician probably did the tire rotation, hopefully didn't back off the spindle nut by mistake and then tighten with the impact.

get it in the air and get it checked out, or if it is a warranty truck, you probably have roadside assistance> call them from your favorite Tim Hortons and let them pay to tow it, dealer should supply you with a courtesy vehicle?

don't drive it far!

Think I got it figured, wheel fell off and he ran into ditch or he bought a Ram and is now on a different forum.
