Wheel scrubs ground while on stand

Ok, so I noticed while I started cleaning my chain with the rear wheel suspended on the rear stand, in two spots, about 4-5 inches apart, the wheel scrubs the ground. As I turned it, it would lightly scrub in two separate spots right in the middle of the tire. Not enough to lock up the wheel, but enough to where you could see and hear it and obviously tell it was making contact with the garage floor. I know for a fact I never hit anything that would have caused any damage to the rim or axle so....any thoughts?

My garage floor is level. Tire pressure? I've never seen a wheel do this before, especially one that has never had any substantial impact.

That seems like a premature conclusion . . .
. . . until that question has been answered.
True, but a rear stand typically has quite a distance between the tyre and the floor. As a result, I would think it would have to be a pretty serious "flat spot" for parts of it to scrub?

I had the same thought... very strange considering most stands should lift the tire at least a half inch, or more off the floor.

If ever there was a need for pictures, or even better, a video showing the tire as it is rotating and making contact with the floor. How about it Robert?
I thought so Mike, hence your comment about a defective tyre / cords etc :) I'd have to agree with you.

That's the pot calling the kettle black if I have ever seen it & the most ironic post I have ever seen..especially coming from the CBR250R forums all time highest poster..98% of which is utterly useless smarta$$ remarks just like the one above.

...but which comes with a 1350:3400 tanks to posts ratio.

He must be doing something right if he gets better than 1 thank for every 3 posts.

Not sure what a 58:1200 ratio says ;).

I could care less how many thanks I have showing..or what YOUR opinion is of it even less....I have had hundreds of thank yous in private messages since I have been a member in here..Now go stick your nose in somebody elses business
LOL. Where was your nose in the first place lol? You are truly a laff riot :D.
