Hello JACUSTOMER, this is typically either a bad hub bearing or an unevenly worn tire. I would start by checking the tires. If they have uneven wear then rotate or replace them. If they are fine then the bearings must be checked.

tires are new and this just started overnight

Does it seem to have more to do with vehicle speed or does it get louder when reving the engine?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Vehicle speed. Tires are all wearing even. checked all the cv boots no cracks and all seems in order there.
Saturn Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 8 years ago
Okay then you need to get the vheicle in the air and spin the tires to listen for the noise. If you can hear it, more than likely you have a bad hub bearing at that wheel.
