RE: Wheel noise
So far we have it's an 06 Hyundai Tucson GL.

I think the guys want to know if it's an auto / standard, 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, and how many miles you have on it. That's what the questions are in that link.

RE: Wheel noise
No need to apologize for being "Dumb!" Probably half the people that post don't give us enough information. You just got to think of us sitting here looking at "Words." We can't see, hear, or touch that vehicle. Anything we have to offer as help comes from what YOU tell us so the more information that we have the better chance we can provide accurate advice. So...

My first suspect would be the wheel bearing. If you can safely jack that wheel off the ground and support the vehicle so it doesn't fall on you, you could check for play. Grab the top and bottom of the tire and rock it up and down. If there is more than a tiny amount of movement the bearing is likely bad. You will probably want to check the brake pads too. If the bearing is to bad the brakes actually try to hold the wheel in place and it will wear them out quickly. That is also likely why the noise stops when the brakes are applied. The brakes are taking some if the strain off of the wheel bearing.

I hope that helps. Please let us know what you find.

RE: Wheel noise
I would have to agree with Garner on his diagnosos. A bad bearing will cause all kinds of noises. So from your description of the problem, it would point to the bearing.

We took the vehicle to Hyundai dealer, the bearings were good, the brakes were good and rotors, they are baffled with the noise, they did something with the brakes ( I believed they greased the calibers) but the noise subsided but still exist..not sure what to do now

RE: Wheel noise
I know this is just about impossible to do but can you describe the noise? Screeching? Squealing? Scraping? Grinding? Rattling? Chattering? Rumbling? ...? I don't know if that might give us a clue or not but it might be worth a try? At worst we just won't be of any help.
