First, I will recommend you don't drive your fozz until you figure out /fix this issue. Trying to imagine the sound of dragging something makes me think of binding or grinding.. It could be brakes.. It could be a wheel bearing or something in one of your differentials or worse or totally none of those at all.. Do you know for a fact that it is coming from a wheel area? Is there an unstable feel while you've driven recently? We are all goin to have different ideas and speculations with different experiences with cars, etc. you should call a mobile mechan
