A few months ago I noticed the starting of a humming noise that seemed to come from the front driver side tire area. I had just recently had my brakes replaced by a "joe shmoe" before this started happening.
If I am under 35-40mph there is no noise, once I go above that the loud hum starts. It happens if I am going straight or turning to the left, it does not matter if I am accelerating or not as long as I am over 40mph the noise is there, however when I turn my wheel to the right, as if going around a turn, the noise is gone, and there is silence in the car.
I have tried to see if the tires are rubbing on something, but there is no uneven wear on the tires.
What could it be? The noise is almost deafening, I have to turn the radio up so loud to drown it out. Please help!
