new tires, now new brake noise


Recommended Posts

i had some new tires installed today at a reputable shop here in santa clara. i had them remove and install the wheels as a convenience to me. when i got home, and pushed my bike into the garage i noticed the sound of the brakes against the front wheel disc was noisier than usual. its always rubbed a little bit, but not quite like this.


while looking through my haynes manual i notice every torque setting listed except for the front wheel axle. any suggestions why the front pads are rubbing after a tire change, and is this something which will adjust itself out in time? should i ride it or have it inspected? i know you are mostly do it yourselfers, but well...some of us arent.


thanks in advance.

Back all the bolts off so they are loose and retorque them in the order and to the spec stated in your owners manual, Not a clymer manual because the order is different. I had the same issue, after the third disassembly to check I found that minor difference in the manuals. The noise was still there although not as loud. That was 6K ago, all is fine.
