so whenever i drive and have the windows open i can tell something is rubbing against both my front wheels and there must be something in the wheel well. there's a big gap to look in, but i see no obstruction. it happens every revolution, it's like a combination of a chirp, hiss, click sound. hard to describe. something like a leaf or twig, but i see NOTHING. is there anything i can do to check? i just hope nothing is really wrong like my rotors or axles are messed up.


i think i can relate the sound to the rubbing you get when a leaf is stuck in your brakes on the bike, and every time the wheel hits it you hear the hiss, clip sound.

come to think of it, i hit a cat like 2 weeks ago, but i didn't hit it with both wheels. that fucker just jumped out in front of my car, i dno't think i killed it though, i just got a piece of that. i couldn't sleep that night because i felt so horrible.

i think i might pull off my hubcaps to see if something is stuck in there
