Today I was driving my car and could hear a clicking noise coming from what seems to be one of the back tires. The noise is not present when I am stopped, but is there when accelerating, coasting, and decelerating. It has a rhythm to it, and the rhythm increases as my speed increases. Any ideas?

You may have picked up something on your tires. It could be a nail or something else but check it out.

I looked into it more, and while it sounds like a clicking noise from inside the car, it's more of a rhythmic scraping when standing next to the back left tire while someone else was driving. I looked and didn't see anything caught in the tire. Could a part be loose and scraping?

Remove the tire and remove the brake drum and check the brake shoes they may be bad.
