Chirping Sound with New Rim

I replaced a rim recently for my drivers side rear tire and when I'm driving I hear a chirping sound coming from that area. Any ideas on what's wrong and how to fix it?

Sounds like a wheel bearing.

Does the sound speed up with the car? Does it stay the same no matter how fast you go? Do brakes or clutch affect the sound...?
Answers are found in details.

Without more detail, I know the rear has an automatic adjuster for e-brake. I had a Taurus once that the adjuster was all the way out and chirped. It continued to get worse until it was a whistle or squeal. Could be something more simple. Could be build up of dust. Take the tire off and check it out. I'd give you my brake cleaner if you were close.

Have you ever changed the rears?

It speeds up as I do and when I brake it goes away. So I'm maybe thinking rubbing on the caliper?

Just get some brake cleaner. Take off the tire and clean it all good. If it still does it, you'll know to go deeper.

I just bought the car in early December and I got into an accident where the rim cracked so I bought a new one and had Wal-Mart switch out the rims and ever since then it's chirped

Once you get the wheel off, you will be able to tell a lot.

I got into an accident where my rim got a bit bent and my car made a squeaking noise in the rear where it got hit. It ended up being the caliper. The impact bent the caliper piston so I had to replace it and all

Does it sound like this.? Sound starts like 46 seconds in or so..... If so multiple people have had this problem. This is my car and I have not fixed it yet but 3 people had the exact same sound and they replaced their rear caliper and then it went away.....
