Has anybody heard of this? I had my tires replaced this morning and upon leaving experienced a rather loud flapping / tapping noise coming from the front driver side wheel.

I went straight back and they told me it is common in these old Mercedes (I have an '89 300 TE), that it is the dust cover inside the wheel. They told me that when a tire is replaced this often happens and that I just have to drive it for a day and the dust cover will tighten itself up from the wheel heat.

Is this a load of blarney or have others experienced it please? I find this an odd flaw if true and even stranger that it is only coming from one wheel.
