    2008 Mini Cooper R52. Adding a link to a video. Alot easier to hear it than me to explain it. Does not make the noise with the tire off the the ground, no weight on it.

    Sounds like an upper strut mount to me.
    You should be able to confirm or dismiss
    this by listening there with the hood up
    while someone thorns the wheel for you.
    If so, replace with a good brand (Lemforder).
    If it looks good but just creaks, it isn’t an
    urgent issue, just annoying. If the rubber is
    cracking and starting to deteriorate, then
    fix it sooner than later.

    Just confirmed, that's exactly what it is. Thank you.
