Hi Rashaan. Thanks for contacting us today. This type of noise is common with a warped brake rotor, worn out brake pads or even wheel bearings that are starting to wear out. It could also be due to a loose caliper. Since there are so many possible sources, it’s best to have a professional mechanic come to your location and complete an onsite inspection.
