Did you reweight the wheels. Sometimes you have to do that

You shouldn't have to rebalance them. If they were out of balance, you would've noticed right away.

What kind of noise is it and when does it happen?

Please provide as much detail as you can if you want help.

If it is a noise while going over bumps it is your sway bar links

Alright Well every time I'm coasting in neutral u can hear a knocking sound around my front right tire. But it like metal on metal hitting or something rubbing but it's really loud and I'm worried bc I only have 12,000 on a 2011 and I'm pretty sure that not normal haha but every time I take left turns its loud too

That is definitely sway bar links then.

There is a TSB on that and your dealer should fix it free of charge since you're still under warranty.
