Lockring Rubbing

Hi Guys,

Hope someone can help me as I'm a noob to bike maintenance.

I'm having problems on my 04' Specialized Enduro Expert with the lock-ring rubbing against the frame. Whenever the skewer is fully tightened up the resistance created means the wheel can hardly be turned by hand. Is there any way to re-centre the wheel to create enough of a gap between the lock-ring and the frame?

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

    Is the lockring tight? Easiest solution would be too put a 100dia x 2mm thick washer on the axle between cone and locknut and recalibrate the calliper on the other side.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    sounds like the hub need looking at. a lose bearing cone lockring would have a similar effect.

    and if it has been lose for a while some of the balls may have dropped out.
