Exclamation Please help identify noise

hey guys, first and foremost thanks for having me on the forum, im new. now on to hopefully a resolution... i have the turbo 2005 convertible cruiser.. as of maybe a few days ago i got a little rattling noise coming from what seems to be the underneath of the front end. a t first i thought it was the plastic cover that had gotten loose, but after removing it the problem continues. best way i can describe it is like a piece of something is stuck to the wheel and the more i accelerate (wheel turns) louder it gets and it is consistent with the rotation of the tire. during turns it stops... in reverse barely a noise (then again i dont go fast enough in reverse to give it a chance to get louder)... it also sounds like a remote control car wen i accelerate... please help my fellow cruisers

Not clear -- does it make noise when you are stopped or not?

@quick silver.... on idle (no moving) very little if barely audible, however as you accelerate and move the noise and speed of noise increase (think baseball card in wheel spokes)... sound tapers off as you come to a stop... i dont see any visual obstructions

Maybe tie rods?? I had a funny sound in the front of my 2002 last year, consistent with tire rotation. When it was checked, the tie rods were in very bad shape and replaced. Just a thought.
