I may be a wheel bearing. Try shifting the weight of the car on the front tires by turning the wheelslightly while driving about 30 MPH. Don't turn enough to change lanes, just enough to put the load on the outside bearing. It may quiet down in one direction. The failed bearing is generally the side that you turned to in order to make the noise go away. Say the noise goes away when you steer to the right, the failed bearing is usually the right one.
You can also check for play by jacking up the car and shaking the tire. There should be no play.

Are the wheels stock, or aftermarket? Is the engine missing maybe under a load?
Had an '02 Jetta TDI I put fancy rims on it, the rims weren't made for the torque the car put out under acceleration, and were actually twisting in there centers causing a severe vibration! Put the steel wheels back on, "Fixed It!"
