Ringing noise from wheel

I can hear a “ringing” noise that appears to be coming from one of the wheels. I can hear the noise when I have my windows down and am driving at slower speeds. The noise sounds similar to a bell ringing and the sound disappears when I apply the brakes.

Have your brakes checked.

If the noise goes away when you apply the brakes then that is a good sign that you have a brake issue.

+1 to Bisbonian’s comment. Wear indicators will do this to let you know the pads are getting thin.

Have you’r brakes inspected by a trusted technician immediatly

Thank you very much for your responses!
