Jack up yer front end. Grab the sides of the wheel and pull it or rock it back and forth . If it sounds like the lug nuts are not tight but are it'd b the wheelbearing


That or drive it around 35-55 mph with no radio or blower noise and swerve back and forth smoothly while listening for a low rumbling noise as the body weight shifts from side to side. It could be only one bad or both.
