There is a wierd sound generated by my passenger rear wheel. It is a rubbing sound that occurs every wheel rotation. I have checked the tire and clearances, so I know it isn't anything that simple. Also, there isn't any noticable physical clue, so I don't think it has anything to do with the brakes. My original thought was wheel bearing. What do you all think?

Thanks

it could either be a bent rim, a bubble in the tire... the tire could be outta balance... but if its not 1 of those.. then i don't know what the problem is!

Not to be rude, but I clearly said I checked the tire. Also, those problems create a vibration or something you can feel. Which I said there is nothing like that.

Is it a metallic rubbing sound?? This could be worn brake pads cutting into the rotor....
