Is it a squeaking sound? If so, this is most likely due to your brakes being low. Brake pads usually have a small piece of metal that only contacts the rotor when the pads are worn down and in need of replacement. They have this so you will have a warning before the pads totally wear out; at that point, you will possibly lose your brakes and damage your rotors. I would ask for assistance from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to come to you and inspect the wheel noise to see exactly what your problem is.
