I have a 1999 GMC Envoy and when I would drive it at any speed I could hear a howling noise like the tires were way too noisy or aggresive. So I took it in and put on a set Goodyear Wranglers. Needless to say the sound didn't go away. So I took it back a week later and they replaced them with a very good set of tires that were supposed to ride smooth and quiet. That didn't help much more. So they checked it out and said that even though they checked the wheel bearings they really didn't seem too bad but feel that is the problem. I know I have to install ball joints and have installed all new brakes and shocks. Do you think it is the the wheel hub bearings or have any other ideals?

If your ABS runs thru clean upon initial starting of the car and only turns on when the car has been put into motion, You have a vibration occuring near the wheel speed sensors that is tripping the ABS system up. Is there any howling noise while driving down the road ( like the howl the tires on a truck would make , but more subdued), and it goes away when you are driving down the road and turn one way or the other?
Need more info...front end you say... A particular side? Is replaced tire the same as other 3 tires? hear it while driving, or braking, or both? Hear it more steering left or right or going around a corner?
Could be a front wheel/hub bearing is my only guess at this point. Howling or groaning could also mindicate a transmission problem.
That could be anything from tires to differential or even a driveshaft carrier bearing on your Vette. The best thing to do is to see if it will make the noise while running it on a lift. If it does not, then the noise is most likely tire-related. If it does, then you can use a mechanic's stethescope to determine the source of the noise.
sorry did you get your tires rotated recentley if so that could be the tires ive had that happen to me before by not rotateing my tires for a while if thats the cause noise should go away if that not it its hard to tell you what a howling noise could be from is it only when your driveing and vehicle moveing
