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.

I have the exact same issue with my 92 Seville. Wheel bearings are good, tire doesn’t budge at all when it’s jacked up. Brand new calipers and pads on it as well. My next guess was warped rotors but at this point I doubt that new ones would change anything. I’ve hit a dead end. This car is broke down every other week since I’ve got it. It’s just eating a hole in my wallet at this point and I’m banging my head against the wall trying to figure out the issue. So if you figure out what it is please let me know lol
