A whining noise as well as a oscillating noise from left front tire. The noise speeds up as well as slows down depending on the speed of the vehicle. The tires are new. The front brakes have been replaced also. The noise will begin at about 15 m/ph. Can't determine what causing the noise.

Hello, thank you for writing in. Due to having the tires replaced recently, you may have a balance issue. Tires are "balanced" in a process where they spin the wheel on a machine and make sure they turn evenly. Any issues are corrected by adding weights to certain parts of the tire. The tires may have been improperly balanced, or may not have been balanced at all. You should start there, and see if the issues is resolved. When they have the wheels off, have a technician check the brakes. Make sure the pads were properly installed and are in place. Between the two inspections and any possible corrections, the issue would go away. If the noises continue, you will want to have the wheel assemblies inspected.
