    If you had a shop rotate your tires, then I would recommend returning to that shop with this question. They should have done a quick test drive to check for problems. This could be wheel balance--there are probably a couple of things more likely than a bent wheel.

    Sounds like the wheel bearings are bad. Do you hear a roaring sound while driving? You will hear a roaring or grinding noise while taking hard right turns because the weight of the car will be loaded onto that wheel when turning. It also could be your ball joints. Good luck.
