Default noise/vibration at speed

So, I get this irritating hum and vibration while driving.
It's most noticeable over 40 mph.
I'm thinking wheel bearing?

It kind of "sounds like" bad road noise or an exhaust drone.
I thought I had a bad tire so I did a rotation to see if the noise would move, but no luck.
Also, it seems to go away while turning right.

What do you gents think?

go drive 40-50mph and gently swerve right and left. if it gets loud one way and quiet the other, you know you're correct



i let mine go until the keys were jingling in the ignition

Yeah. That's what I thought.
Turning right makes it stop.
So, that means it's a left bearing?
I think front because I can feel it in the floor.

i couldn't tell you which. that always confuses me.

i do know that about a month after i changed one on mine, the other started humming. i believe this is common, so you might just do both

Thanks man.
I wonder if this is something I want to tackle?
Probably should go to a pro...
