Probably nothing to worry about, new brake pads take a little time to adjust. If the problem doesn't go away within a few hundred miles, then I would have a look at the brake job

Agreed there may be a while until the pads wear in it would be good to check that the wheels are not getting hot, pour a small amount of water on the wheels and see if there is any steam (after a reasonable long drive) this will indicate over heating. do not use your hand for obvious reasons. also if you have disc breaks which have not been skimmed or replaced when the pads where replaced they you may have noise for a while until the pads wear down to the irregular shape of the discs.

If it started after the brakes where changed it might be a problem with installation (maybe brake wear indicators [metal tabs to allert when brake pads are low]) or could just have a pebble stuck inbetween pad and disc. sometimes if the pad /disc wears unevenly, one or the other will develop a lip and this may cause your whistling sound.

I have a scraping noise coming from my wheels.


Sometimes these things happen and even after servicing them they come back again..If you want to be safe then have the braking system serviced...which means removing every pad and clean everything...Once all is put back you should be fine..

well i can help with problem #2

even if you tightened the wheel bearing, it is probably worn out..

what it does when it's loose is you won't hear much noise when you drive on a strait road but the minute you put some weight on it, like when you take a curve, the weight of the body is applied on the bearing resulting in a scraping noise....

and the faster you'll drive the more noise you'll get

so let's say you take a left turn you're gonna hear noise from the right wheel...

OCCASIONAL Metallic scraping noise - New ceramic brake pads.


You could be right with the wheel bearings. But first take the wheel off and check that nothing is scraping the rotor. Look all the way around the rotor. A suggestion will be that the brake pads have worn enough that the brake pad wear indicator is starting to scrape. Pry them back a little.
