Icon8 Progressing and annoying road noise!

Starting three months ago, this noise seemingly coming from the front left end has gotten so bad that I have to borrow my girlfriend's car for driving any speed exeeding 65 mph. It gets worse when making left turns at a constant speed (shifting car weight on right side) and sporadically stops for ten seconds at a time occasionally, even when the pavement has not changed. Sounds like....constantly driving on a rumble strip.
Anyone else experiencing this? 5th St. Ford here in Louisville thinks it's the tires. I'm thinking no way.

yeah that sounds like what im experiencing currently, i believe you have a wheel bearing problem. I rotated my tires and it did nothing, and am changing the bearings tomorrow....that is what you should try

jack up the front end and grab the tire and try and move it from side to side and up and down and see if you can feel any play. if you can you need bearings
