Yesterday I went to my local bike shop and had my rear wheel fixed, they adjusted the spokes, and my rear tire stopped rubbing, now it started rubbing again. Whenever I do a 180 it starts rubbing. And yes I can tell my rear wheel isn't straight. I am now considering to get a new frame and rear wheel, can anyone help me with me problem?

There's a few reasons it could rub. It's not true, it's not in straight, or your tyre is too wide for the frame. Get a narrower tyre, then it won't rub even if your wheel isn't in straight or is bucked

When you 180 , your wheel will shift place in the dropouts causing the tire to rub on your frame . You probably landed wrong , and didn't tighten your wheel down a lot . Loosen both bolts and aim your tire to be centre with your frame , and be careful while trying and keep the chain right because it's easy to get it angled to that side .

A new rear wheel and frame is totally not necessary. Take this advice, maybe a slimmer tire as well.

I have had this happen when doing my 170's (like a 180...but I don't quite make it all the way around). You need to tighten the rear wheel more, and a chain tensioner will help too.

the bike shop only trues the wheel but doesn't tension the spokes so when you do a 180 the spokes might not have enough tension and cause it to rub

Err, what kind of shop do you go to where they only do half a job? A true should always end up with a proper tension.

This. In RARE cases due to a wheel being damaged I have seen them go out with slightly off tension, but it was at customer request and acknowledgement that it was essentially a bandaid on a bullet wound that might buy some time before a replacement rim and spokes were needed.

Ah, he must go to a "bi shop" instead. It's like a bike shop, but everything there is half off and that's how they do their job there as well.

It depends how bad the buckle is. Sometimes it's not possible to true with perfect tension. However, they should've explained that and said it's not perfect. And they should've suggested a new rim/wheel. I see it all the time. However, if it's truable, it should be dished and tensioned properly
