Did you hit anything to possibly bend the rim/wheel, or hub assembly? Take the wheel back off and inspect the surface of the wheel that meets the hub to make sure it is free of debris.
Could be your wheel bearings, or steering components.
Ok. I'll try checking that. Thank you. Do I need to worry about the tire falling off from driving? It's the driver side front.
That is a judgement call and I'm not there to look at it. If there is a lot of slop and the tire moves around an inch or more then it is likely that ball joints or other components are broken or worn badly and there is a risk the tire could come off. However, if the "wiggle" is moderate, slight wiggling of less than an inch of play then you could probably safely drive it to a repair shop.
Mark Grignon, I saw your answer in my inbox. I will check because I haven't hit anything.
Ok, we do have a lot of squeaking from that part of the car as well. And when driving it, just changing lanes it sounds like something in the tire but, louder.
I'd say ball joint or something broken in the suspension like was mentioned above, get it checked ASAP.
Ok. Will do, thank you very much.
