    Hey so i got myself into a big problem, I hit the curb on my front right wheel about a week ago and my car run fine i just bought new steelies since the one i hit the curb got bent, everything was ok nothing wrong no sound but just today I started hearing a grinding noise from 0 to around 40ish km/h its a constant noise so the faster i drive the faster the noise goes but afte around 45km/h i BARELY hear the sound anymore , it is pretty loud too, and starting this evening when i press on the brake it would give me a small thumping feed back on my foot, im just trying to describe everything

    my car doesnt lean to one side or anything it drives normally its just that it makes that sound and that small thumping feedback,
    Anyone know what it might be?
    if do you know any good inspection place that can inspect it thoroughly

    Lol, CorollaGT did the same thing last week, you probably messed up an axle, possibly a bearing.

    might a tranny since its only heard while accelerating. but is more likely a brake sticking, brakes misaligned, or the wheel bearing or hub fucked up since you are getting pedal rattle
