Anybody ever have any problem with "tire scrub"? Basically the tire loses PSI and starts to rub against I guess the break pad or some other assembly with the breaks. And it makes a horrible rubbing/swishing noise at low speeds

If gone untreated for awhile any problems been caused by this? At my last oil change the dealer said the tire was low on air and was causing the scrub, they said the filled the tire but I guess they didn't fix the problem because it came back a few weeks later. Going to have the tire checked at inspection in a few weeks. Wanted to get some thoughts.

I guess those Philly potholes are taking quite a toll on my GA!

There was a service bulletin out on this and it says that the tire is is moving on the rim causing the noise. The service bulletin said to inflate the front 2 tires to 42psi. I just replaced the tires on mine to cure it. You could search many posts on the topic in the forums.
