Why do It sound like the back tire rubs but it's not

(2006 Mercedes-Benz C230)
It' sounds just like a tire rubbing against the car and it's coming from the back of the car. I was told it was my brakes but it'll make that sound when I'm not breaking, but only under speeds 15 mph it'll make that noise. Help me
How long have you had this problem? A week

The possibility of it been your brakes can not be disregarded just be cause the noise occurs without brake application. Obviously, without seeing or hearing the vehicle, I can only make wild guesses. But, a Brake Backing Plate could have been bent and is now rubbing. If Brake Pads were replaced, but installed over the old rotors. Brake Rotors do wear with the pads and develop "Lips" around the edge. Now the pads have worn to a point where the Brake Pad Backings are rubbing on the "Lips" on the edge of the rotors. There are numerous Brake related issues that could cause your rubbing noise. I would recommend you have a shop (preferably, one that specializes in European or Mercedes Vehicles) take a peek. Even if it something simple, it's worth the peace of mind.
