Completely stock IS350 Tires Rubbing
2009 IS350 with stock everything... no mods. Went and got a simple Oil change and tires rotated. While rotating the tires, the mechanic noticed the inside of the front left tire was pretty much completely shredded. Shocked that I was able to drive on the tire it was so bad.
after rotating the tires and replacing the shredded one along with the other front tire and doing an alignment to check to see what the problem was... it turns out the control arm is rubbing against the tires when making fairly sharp turns. I have never heard this noise since I bought the car 9 months ago so not sure how long the tires has been shredded like this. After moving the back tires up to the front and the alignment, there is a noticable noise while turning.
Just found out about this problem under an hour ago and have to bring it in to Lexus tomorrow or as soon as possible. I searched as much as I could to try and find if this is a somewhat common issue or just isolated to my car but couldnt find any of these issues when everything was stock. Most were due to larger wheels or lowering the car.
So my question is, has anyone else experienced this issue or possibly know what the problem may be before I bring my car in to the dealership and get screwed. I dont know much about cars so just wanted to get an opinion from anyone with experience with these cars.
Any help would be greatly appreciated and Thank you ahead of time for helping me out on this issue.
