Check for loose or missing bolts. Check also for incorrect wheel rim, incorrect rotor, or incorrect caliper.

year of car/truck ? if its a dodge truck look at brake caliper adapter for wear,check caliper retaining clips if their broken they will let the caliper move up in the caliper adapter hitting tour wheel hub . is the wheel right one for veh ? If you just changed the pads and did not compress the caliper piston all the way down. the caliper can rub against the wheel. The whole caliper floats and if the piston is not fully compressed it can hit the wheel with the new pads on.

Remove the caliper retaining bolts from the inside of the caliper. Lift the caliper off the mounting bracket and over the rotor. Slide the old inner and outer brake pads out of the caliper, and slide the new brake pads into the caliper.

The caliper is one part of the brake system.

A caliper is a measuring tool that measures either the inside or outside diameter of something. Disc brakes on a car use a caliper to push the brake pads against the rotor to stop the car.
