Wheel/Road Noise

So while driving from 0 to 30 i can feel a very slight rubber rubbing noise coming from the wheel. Now the stering wheel does not shake or anything its just that rubbing noise that i hear while driving thats bothering me. I check the clearence and everything is clear of the wheels. the closest thing to the wheels is the springs but i can still put all my fingers through it so i dont think its rubbing on that. I was also wondering if it could just be the road noise since i went from my OEM 18" wheels to wheels that are 265/35R 22. Could it just be the road noise or is something just rubbing under there.

Less rubber = more road noise.

Please check your ebrake cable to make sure it isn't rubbing on the inner barrel of your rim.

Check the inside sidewalls of each tire to make 100% sure your not cutting into your inside sidewalls. The noise you describe does not sound like road noise to me. Good luck.
