1998 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 135k miles
Ive been trying to find a correct answer to my car problem. I have had blow outs every other day for the past 5 days now from just one tire, the front driver side tire. I notice the tire rubbs a metal brace that seems to be part of the strut assembly located directly between the tire and the inside wall. I got a 4 wheel alignment done which seemed to work and the tire no longer scraped the metal brace till about a month after the alignment. I have even checked the tire to see any damage made and I never see any damage at all untiil im on the road and its too late and I get another blow out. It only takes about 10 minutes of driving STRAIGHT before the tire rips up. Is it an alignment problem or is there something else thats causing this problem thats in dire need of replacement? There is never a warning, no sounds of rubbing or real shaking until right before the tire gives out. Ive even spray painted the inside tire to see where the rubbing is being done but NO signs of rubbing, but I hear it grind when I turn LEFT ONLY.
have the same problem?
