    Default brake disc

    ive got a noise coming from my rear end and its a kind of noise like something stuck on tyre going round,but took wheels of today and rolled the hub round it sort of stuck then moved again so thinking maybe it could be a noise from my disc?does this sound common?warped rear disc?

    They're fairly cheap to replace, but you could also try swapping the rear wheels to the front and see if the noise moves or if it stays at the back...

    Because the discs are held in place by a single bolt they can move slightly when the wheel is off and then rub when rotated.

    With the wheel back on try again if it binds anywhere check if the hub is true or if the disc is warped.

    With the wheels off it "might" bind a bit, with the wheels on the disc will be held flat to the hub and should not bind, if it still does, you have a warped disc mate or a damaged hub bearing.

    Sounds like the disc or hub is warped mate, I hope not as I am always sorry to be the bearer of bad news
