Back Wheel bent in - zero damage?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 Chevrolet HHR and the passenger back wheel is bent inwards...does anyone know how I can fix this? 

It looks like 1-2" inwards, no wheel damage and no subframe or lower control arm damage. I replaced the back wheels with the front ones to check if it made a difference, it didnt. 

It makes a weird rubbing sound when turning to the left only, not when going straight and not when turning to the right. As if the wheel was scraping metal.

My steering wheel is off a bit too, 15 degrees clock wise. I installed new tie rod ends and did the front alignment. 

It wont allow me to add pictures over .98mb (my 1 picture is 6 mb)

Hello and welcome!

For the hind wheels I would recommend getting a rear wheel alignment inspection since you said it's the back passenger wheel. It insures the wheels are parallel with the vehicle centerline.

Usually tires bent inwards are caused from damaged upper control arm, but it could also be a bent spindle.
If alignment isn't the problem then have the vehicle suspension checked for damaged components.

I suggest you to contact online car mechanic because I experience this a few months ago, and then I contact to some mechanics but they did not advise me properly. Then one of my friend told me about online car mechanic team, and I contact to them, they are so highly experienced professionals, they guide me step by step in a detailed way. And also they provide me some extra tips to avoid from such issues. I highly recommend you.
