I have the stock 18"er and this happens when I'm trying to either maneuver the car to park or getting out of a parking spot when I have the steering wheel fully cranked. Anyone else experiencing this? Fender burnout or what?

Re: Sharp Turn = Rubbing Noise (USAF_Ron)

From previous threads
This may be coming from the fender wheel liner not properly fit.
May need extra screws that were not placed during assembly.
Hence, coming loose and hits the wheels when the are fully turned.
Try checking them out.
(can not find the previous threads where people were hearing some rubbing noise when the wheels are fully turned.)

Do you have an aftermarket lower IC pipe? I hear those rub at full crank.

Everything under the hood is still stock. I'll try checking inside the fender wells for missing screws.
Thanks!

in my case...it isn't from one missing...there is one that has an anchor that fits in a rectangular hole on the body of the car....this has popped out...and just needs to be put back in....if you're really worried about it comin out again...I suppose you could put a nut and bolt on it
