Ok, it sounds like there is either a wheel bearing issue or a problem with the brake caliper. I would jack it up and see if you have play in the wheel if there is a loose wheel bearing you should be able to feel the movement in the wheel. If there isn't any movement I would pull the wheel at inspect the brake pads and caliper. If this is not something you can do yourself, then I would get it checked right away, because this could be a big issue if left unattended.What happens next:Just Answer will now charge you for the full amount of your question.My goal is to provide you with 5-star service.
