Re: uber loud metalic scratching sound at slow speeds?

Just to mention one thing - this is really unlikely, but, hey, small world and all that!...

So I bought some Clio rims to fit our Scenic, to take winter tyres. They were the same size, wheel width and offset. But the front ones only just cleared the front calipers, by mm or two! And the rears did actually interfere with the calipers.

If someone's tried to be smart before selling it to you, maybe they swapped wheels over from a smaller Renault they had with decent tyres, to replace worn out ones, before selling it on.... Just something to consider.....
