Default pulsation/vibration from front driver side

2007 with about 85k miles, lately noticed a noise coming from the front left of the car with a slight pulsating that I can feel through the steering wheel. The feel isn't terrible but its noticeable. I just rotated the tires when it started so I'm thinking it might be the tire, but I'm more concerned its something more serious like a cv joint. Suggestions?

Might be loose lugs, bent rim, or bad tie rod.

Lugs are good, just torqued them again. I'm gonna rotate the tires again in a few miles so if the sound moves ill know its the wheel. Ill check the tie rod

I was thinking a wheel bearing.

You usually don't feel a wheel bearing unless it's been bad a very long time.
