Hello, the hub bearing could be failing. I would not drive the vehicle until it is inspected for the noise. This bearing is connected to your wheel and tire. If you’d like, a certified Your Mechanic Technician can come to your location to perform this inspection. Please look at this web site for more information and service options. Front end noise
