Sounds like either a bad tire or wheel bearing. Check you tires for rough spots or high/low spots and replace if belts are broken. This is a raised area on the tire that will run diagonally across your tire. If tires look OK try moving the front tonthe back and see if the noise moves. To check for a front wheel bearing drive about 50 kms per hour and slowly turn the wheels left and right. If the noise gets worse or louder you need a bearing. For the back younhave to raise the rear and pin the wheels by hand and listen for a roar.
Need a bit more information. Under what conditions does the noise occur? While driving? While braking? Both? Does it get louder the faster you drive? Does the noise only happen when turning? Going straight? Both? Etc.
My thoughts: if your "rumbling" is more of a "grinding" or "roaring," I'd lean more toward a wheel bearing going bad. If that is the case, the part # for it should be 44300-S5A-008, however, this is a press-in type of bearing and you will need equipment or a shop who can do that for you if you don't know how. AND, if this happens to be the issue, hit up a website like hondahondaparts.com where they sell the parts cheaper than what you get them from the dealer for.
You may be stuck in 4 wheel drive which when driving on hard pavement will make a rumbling sound because the differentials should not both be engauged when on pavement. This will damage them quickly if not corrected.
You should check the power steering fluid level first. However, you said the noise gets louder if you turn the wheel. That sounds like a front hub bearing. To check the front and rear hubs, raise the tires off the ground one at a time. Try to move the tire in & out at the top, sides and bottom. spin the tire if you can. Only a tiny amount of play, if any, is acceptable. If you hear or feel rumbling or roughness when turning the tire, the hub is bad and must be replaced
Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.
