    driving home tonight I noticed again for the first time in a while that one of my front wheels was making a srange noise. it sounded like something was wrong with one of my front wheels. I think it was my front right wheel bearing but I honestly don't have much of an idea of what I am doing. any idea how to check if it/they need replacing or any other ideas how to find out what it is. I know the alignment is a-ok. ideas?

    It sounds like some sort of metal on metal. It was a combination between a whirr-ing and a kind of whistle, and it was happening when I was driving uphill in a roundabout taking a left. One friend thoughtt it might be the wheel bearing but he knows about as much as me if not less. Ill see if I can make a recording of it if it happens again
