How the hell could your tire rub against your pads, which are inside the caliper???

well the only thing i can make out of your post is that your ROTORS are rubbing against pads. In this case it just means the rotor is out of true, you can bend it back into shape slightly or buy a new one

He could have poorly adjusted V brakes that are hitting the tire, not the rim. Peewee, before you start any more new threads, keep in mind that the more info you provide, the easier it is for us to help you out. Do you have disc brakes, or V brakes?

I think Pee Wee's bike must have gotten pretty banged up while it was being stored in the basement of the Alamo.

Just go the Shimano website and download the service instructions- it tells you how to adjust the brakes there:

I should point out in my weak defense that I had just read his other thread where he asked how to clean his brakes.
