If you have all nuts off & don't see anything else, I'd bet money you have aluminum or similar rims (wheels) on it. With 2 disimilar metals making contact like they do, it usually causes them to corrode together, almost like they're welded. Try spraying some penetrating oil in by studs, and rotate tire to move it around a bit. In some cases I've had to get a good swing with a big rubber hammer ( to avoid damage to rim) from behind to break them loose, and even had some success with snugging nuts back up, then back them off a turn or 2, then lower vehicle so tires are back on the ground, and rock the car side to side pretty hard. Then jack it back up & try again. If car securely on jack & stands, or even better a hoist, sometimes you get away with a good swift heel to the tire from side to side. Good Luck, keep us posted.

Hi First I suggest that you get a diagonostic check on ABS system. and then a visual inspection of the brakes. Warped brake rotors do not make noice, but the steering will start to judder when brakes applied at around speeds from 40 up . Possible cause that the vehile picked up something from road such as nylon/ plastic/stone Mike

First thing to check is the radiator cap seal. If it is not sealing properly, the water will boil off and then soon, the anti freeze will begin to disappear. Clean the metal surfaces and gasket and make sure it is tight ---or buy a new cap --but make sure there is a seal. If that doesn't cure it, you may have a head gasket leak that blows the coolant (anti freeze) into one cylinder. If that cylinder is tight, the coolant will only evaporate in the heat and be blown out the exhaust --not entering the oil pan. Check your exhaust when you start up. You may see white smoke, or even liquid, exiting the exhaust pipe, indicating a blown head gasket (then engine may run rough, too). If this is the case, there are reasonably inexpensive cures for this in some cases.

You might need a lube job or you may need to see if noise is coming from another place such as your engine water pump, brakes, power steering. Look for leaks.
