Did you over torque the rear axle nut?sometimes the brakes drag too once you first change the tire. Put the bike on a stand Crank the bike put in gear makin sure to cycle the brakes on and off. For a short stint then check it again. It shouldn't be draggin at this time. If it is. Take the brakes off. Check the alignment and adjustment on the rim then make sure the brake pads are flat against the piston Re apply brake. I also would say to check the bar that the brake pads are on for any scratches. It should be very smooth or it will cause the brake to bind hope this helps

Yes it can. Each bike has a torque rarely do ppl use it though. The only things that can squeak back there are the brakes and the bearings. Isolate the squeak to one of those two locations and go from there

Youve checked everything to be tight and in line? Do you a rear stand for you bike. If so lift the rear tire start the bike put it in gear and look at the tire as it spins. Do u have a defective tire you think? I buy blem tires alot but ive obly had one of them not perfectly round and when i told the rep who sold he to me he just got me another one. But it actually wobbled and got worse the faster i went

Oh shit. Well that is definately not what i was trying to help you with. If the front is bumping id say its a bad tire. Or the pinch bolts and main axle rod is not centered between the forks. But id really say its a bad tire. My tired would get flat spots from riding wheelies and the bike would shake
