    Most likely suspect=hub bearing(s). Jack up one side of the front of the car. Now get in
    and start engine,put trans. in gear and LIGHTLY accelerate to about 30 mph.Listen for
    noise. Do the same for the other side and compare! If either side louder than the other
    there's your bad hub bearing. Good idea to replace both with quality parts. There is a lot
    of different level's of bearings DONT SKIMP get the good stuff.

    Could be a worn wheel bearing or suspension parts and are the tires set to correct air pressure
