I have a 2011 BMW 335i xdrive. I slightly hear a wobble sound, mostly pronounced when decelerating. Seems to be right side front maybe? wheel bearing? Balance or alignment? Differential? Any insights?

How worn are the tires? They can sometimes make a howling, wobble sounds around the 10-15mph range. Also could be the front CV joint that is worn. Have it looked at before it gets worse.

Toms response would sound about right to me. Usually if a wheel bearing is on its way out the door it will be more of a grating noise constantly. and normally only heard at a bit of a higher speed and only get louder the faster you go. As tom suggested check your tires for unusual ware and the cv joints and axels for looseness
