Hub bearing...put the car on jack stand and look for play when u hold the tire side my side and kind of give it a heavy shake left to right

Two other ways to check for a bad hub - when driving turn the wheel slightly to the left - if you have a bad hub, it usually gets louder. Second way is to raise the wheel, put the car in neutral and spin the wheel while holding onto the spring. If you can feel the balls grinding in the hub, it's bad.
