metal popping noise coming from front wheels

when I stop the car I hear a metal popping sound coming from the two front wheels, like the brakes. After about 5 to 10 minutes of cool down is gone. Never hear anything during normal driving. Is this normal. Car is brand new 2011 (2000 miles)

Not wheel bearings. That's normal. Its your brakes cooling down after some good use. Nothing to worry about at all.
