I experience a rumbling feeling like driving over rough pavement starting at about 60 mph. It is less obvious when accelerating and more so when I back of on the gas. Vibration lessens when I turn the wheel. Is this a symptom of a wheel bearing problem or is it more likely something else?

    I would also check for play in the front wheel bearings or worn front wheel bearings.
