it means rolling up the inner surface of the arch which is flat originally. The edge of inner surface of the arch is also sharp and hence damages the tyre when it touches it for various reasons.

It sound as if the rear left suspension has shifted a bit, meaning the wheel hub is not at the center of the wheel arch.

Please dont get confused.. There is NOTHING wrong with the wheel or its hub. The metal wheel arch(the body of the car) is a little inside. Will get it hammered/pulled out soon.

PROBLEM SOLVED ! ! !

Ok here is the outcome of my weekend at the garage. The metal of the wheel arch was pushed out using a wheel jack by the welder(no damage to the paint). Then after testing the ride with a lot of load, speed and sharp turning the problem dint appear to be there anymore. So now i can do my 2k trip down south with my family and not be worried about the problem i was facing.

Thanks a lot guys. A special thanks to Nitroxx for his ideas/inputs.

Sounds like a version of fender rolling. They have cool little contraptions to do this nicely >
