First, you need to make sure that it is the wheel and not your brakes. Check your brakes first to see if they need replaced.

What is that annoying ticking noise mustangs make when you change the oil?

The ticking sound is coming from the valve lifters. When the oil filter is changed, air is introduced into the system, which causes air bubbles to form in the oil. This causes the valve lifters to "leak down", which is what causes the ticking sound. It can take several days for the bubbles to dissipate. It's annoying, but harmless.
