I am running 275/65-16 on my FJ and when I turn all the way to one side I get a weird whining sound. Am I experiencing rubbing? Or what is it? It is completely new to me and I have had these new tires on for like 2K miles. It kind of sounds like rattling.

Can you be any more vague...

Is it when you turn left or right? Do you hear it all the time? Is it only during certain situations, like turning fast...Slow...Up a hill? etc...

It could be a power steering issue, but could be as easy as a loose belt.

Sorry about being super vague. But I am having trouble replicating it, I tried today. I was turning left quickly on a flat surface if that helps. Happened turning right before too. Worse part is that I can feel the wheel bind when I am backing up and turning the wheel all the way to the left or right when parallel parking on the street (one way street).

Ok, not to insult you...But you're not driving around in 4H are you (4WD)? It should be in 2H.

Also, you were in a wreck recently? As per your other posts...

If your tire is rubbing you should easily be able to see rub marks on the body mount area behind the front tires.
