My 2001 Chevy Venture has road noise as if I were driving over rumble strips, but not as loud and the sound is directly related to speed. The noise also doesn't change by swerving like when trying to determine if it a bearing. What is the noise?

I have rotated just the front tires to see if the noise would change and it has not

Thank you for the replies. The noise does seem to come from the front and if put into neutral while driving the noise remains exactly the same. My alignment is also good if that matters.

Thanks I'll try that. Could it be something as simple as needing new tires?
