Hey guys. I hit a pothole today and started hearing a flapping noise coming from my front wheel when my window is open. I checked around the wheel and nothing seems to be touching it.

Any idea on what it could be.
Thank you.

Stop by a reputable tire shop and ask them to put car on lift. Check tire/sidewall for separation from casing. If that's not it, then while its on the lift they can quickly check the suspension to make sure nothing is coming loose or rubbing.

Some tire shops will let you in the work area and you can look with tech.
