New noise

So my right front jut started making a new weird noise that I can't figure out for the life of me. It sounds like a rubbing kinda noise but doesn't do it when I step on the brakes or when I accelerate just when I'm coasting. Speeds up faster I go. Nothing appears to be rubbing visually but no idea what else it could be? It seems when I raise the up it and put it back down it doesn't do it anymore for awhile and then comes back. What the French could it be?!

Wheel bearing?? Jack the car up, try and wiggle the wheel if it moves, that's your problem.

Are your tires chopped up?

I do need an alignment. I could try that. It only does it at speeds below 30ish and doesn't do it when I turn

Your struts are dying. You had Racelands right?

No they're fine. Ksports kontrol pros. And it was the tires being chopped.

The biggest cause of tires getting chopped is weak struts. If they weren't already that way when you installed the coils, then it will happen to the new tires as well unless you fix whatever was causing it.
