The noise that your are hearing could be the lug nuts being loose or the wheel bearing hub assembly could be failing. Check the lug nuts and tighten them if they are loose. If the lug nuts are tight, then jack up the vehicle and check the wheel bearings for any noise. If there is a slight noise from the center of the wheel, then the wheel bearing hub assembly would need replaced. If you need further assistance with your vehicle making a noise, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
