Screeching sound coming from right front passenger Wheel

Hello everyone, I don't post here often but on New Years Eve as I was driving back home my right front wheel started screeching. I'm unsure of what it is, and I have made an appointment at the chevy dealership to get checked out. I have two questions, if anyone can answer. First, Does anyone know what it may be? and two, is it safe enough to drive it to the dealership which is probably 20 minutes away.

Thanks in advance

Did you check for a body, they tend to make screeching sounds...

Is there ice where you are? could be ice build up. My guess is defective wheel bearing or seized caliper. A seized caliper will heat up everything connected to your brake rotor. So you wheel will be piping hot if its seized, happened to me once. Just grinding noise with no heat I would guess a defective wheel bearing, okay to drive on, but should be replaced asap if driven too long can be very dangerous.

Could be something weird too, but couldn't really tell without test driving it.

I was leaning towards the screening passenger approach but that works too

This happened to me once. It was a pebble stuck in between the brake shield and the disk brake. When the car moves the brake disk will rub against the pebble and the brake shield will amplify the sound.. try backing up the car and if it does not dislodge it you need to physically take it off. hope this helps

Mine did this a while back and finally figured it out that it was one of my break caliper covers rubbing. a little tug and all good!

How many miles on the car? Constant Squeal or is it Happening when braking or more when turning??? Does it Change tone at all when you turn or Break? Do you fell anything in the steering wheel (vibration ,Pulling, Clunk)? The more info the better.

You may need your brake pads replaced. The audible wear indicator will contact the rotor as the pad lining diminishes . It's the pads way of telling you "hey, I need to be replaced'' .

Most likely or should I say, I would feel comfortable driving it 20 miles to the dealer as long as you don't have or it develops a very noticeable shake in the steering wheel. Just use caution and judgement drive slow and stay off highway, and be ready not on the phone or distracted and 2 hands on the wheel in case you loose a wheel. I have driven 2 plus weeks on a bad wheel bearing heard it squealing, jacked it up checked wheel had bit play in it, but well i wanted to fish that weekend instead of fixing it so waited till next weekend by which time had nice wheel wobble at 50 MPH hour steering wheel was shaking enough to be visible noticeable.

7,000 miles its a 2012. It squeals only in motion. Reversing or in drive. I haven't driven it enough to tell whether the steering wheel is pulling. I think i felt some vibration through the steering wheel.

After calling Geico, the chevy service shop, and AAA, I am basically stuck driving the car tomorrow morning to the dealership. I guess I will just drive with my hazards on and drive super slow. I'm hoping its more along the lines of the rotors needing to be replaced or a pebble. A defective wheel bearing or seized caliper sounds more serious.

Also, the car was driving fine and then all the sudden I made a right turn and then noticed this squealing/screeching sound. Ever since then, I have had calypso (my camaro's name) parked because I am scared of further damaging her.

Most likely needs new brake pads. They may have worn out prematurely due to a stuck caliper or some other reason.

ok so back from the dealer. Apparently it was a splash guard that was hitting the tire or wheel or something and it was making that screeching sound. But they fixed it an it was under warranty so all in all i'm glad that I have my baby back to full health. Thanks so much to all for giving their input.
