    Hi Guys has anyone else had the same issue I have.. I have what sounds like a brake scraping noise coming from both of my 2 front tires. I have replaced the discs and pads checked the geometry and balance but still get the noise :doh:

    Check anti-rattle springs that should sit on pads. If mis-aligned then they can scrape and make noises.

    Did the noise come before or after the brakes were fitted?

    MMMM I'm sure it is tyre related as switching the wheels moves the sound of course Conti say there is nothing wrong with the tyre!

    What model of w211 do you have? If its a sport you'll have a staggered set-up and the rear wheels should be wider than the front. Are they stock wheels or aftermarket?
