I got new wheels and tires put on a few days ago. I now notice a rattling sound when driving coming from the front left side? It stops when I apply any pressure to the brakes. What could be making this happen? I have read common problems with cobalts, wheel bearings, tie rods etc. This seems different from other issues I have read about.

Update: I found the problem and am getting it fixed tomorrow. The shop that mounted my new wheels did a really bad job with the wheel spacers. They were mounted crooked and had a gap. This caused wobbling in the tires and the discs for the brakes were loose and rattling. Hopefully this will help somebody else if they have this unusual problem.
