For this case, I would need a bit more information to give you a precise answer. A couple things that come to mind are cupped tires or a bad wheel bearing. Both of these items would cause a rotational noise that is proportional to vehicle speed. I suggest having a trained mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, listen to your vehicle firsthand to have this issue diagnosed and resolved.
