Rear brake metal screeching sound when coming to complete stop

My rear brakes has developed metal rubbing metal loud shimmering sound when I come to a complete stop. It only happens when the brakes are cool, e.g in the morning at the car park, or at the first traffic light after exiting a long smooth cruise on the expressway.

Visual inspection suggests that I still have rear pad and no funny marks on the disc.

It always make those low pitch "thum" sound before coming to a complete stop. Never had problem with high pitch metal rubbing sound. Much louder than the usual brake screeching/shimmer sound.

It started about 2 days after I changed my rims. Could the rims be the problem?

You may need to go and dismantle the brakes to see. It cud be uneven wear, stone got into the pads or the disk has problems.

I think your problem is the same as mine. Highly likely is your rims. What's the size of your rims? Take a look at the thread I recently post. Let me know if yours is the same as my situation.

i have a similar but different problem. F10 520i.

sometimes (not all time), when the car is slowing coming to full stop, the front left brake develop a sound similar to abs braking / vibration sound, but without the vibration. Had it checked by PML during 20k services but they couldn't identify the problem and ask me to monitor.....

any bro know what the problem might be?

Yup, same problem as this one, especially when cold at night and the car haven't been driven...

So I assume it should be normal?

RBB, yes, hub centric. Not sure if you remember I pmed you about the vibration and road force balancing. Not sure why, but after a few days of driving, my vibrations were mostly gone. Probably was flat spots that sort themselves out.
