Q: Wheel or Brake problem font end sounds like it coming from the right passenger side

asked by on

There is a rubbing and scrunching sound in the right front passenger side when coming to a stop. The scrunching sound is not a metal on metal sound. It also feels like the car is l wobbly this could be because the tire looses air on that side I want to replace the tires but would like to know if I should address something else before I do this
