IMO, the rims used by Dahon are not the best quality. There is a mismatch where the rim ends come together (this has happended to me on three warrantee rim changes).
As for your problem, I thought maybe burrs at the mismatch were imbedding in the brakes. If this were the case only one side of the brake pair would be affected.
I JUST went to check the rims on my Speed 7. I never heard any scraping sounds but the rims are scored.
folder fanatic, I'm going to take your advice on the Kool-Stops. Thanks!
