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.
Does it happen when you drive over bumps? You should bring it by a tire shop, ask them to put it on a lift and check to see if it could be ball joints or wheel barrings. Another possibility would be an axle, if the rubber boot is broken its possible the part may need to be replaced
If the steering wheel moves back and forth at 15-20MPH, the tires most likely have a slipped belt. The only way to diagnose which one is bad is to get a full size spare and put it in place of one front wheel, drive it and see if the problem is still there. If it is, put the wheel back on and the spare on the opposite side and drive it again.
Try hitting the inside of the tire with a hammer. the bigger the better. What happens is the wheel will rust if steel or corrode if aluminum an bind up on the lip of the hub. Thats the part that sticks through the very center of wheel. If you can safely do it you can also try to kick the inside of the tire with your foot. I wouldn't try it unless the vehicle was supported by at least a jack stand an jack.
If all else fail you can put the lug nuts on loosely, lower the car, and drive it back and forth slowly until the wheel "falls" off. Then you can jack it up and finish changing the tire.
You probably have a bad tire or wheel bearing. Either the tire is cupped causing humming noise or grease inside sealed wheel bearing is burnt up. I would take front tire and move to the back of the car. Then drive again. If noise stays the same you probably have a bad wheel bearing. If noise moves to the back of the car than you may need to replace the tire. Most likely it is the wheel bearing, I replace them all the time at my shop
Maybe you have a bad wheel bearing. You could jack up the wheels one by one and turn them to listen. Or you could put the rear wheels on jackstands and put the truck in drive so you could listen for noise in the differential or drive train. The bit about cornering makes it sound more like an individual wheel though.
try the simple solution first put your front tires on back and back tires on front. check your air pressure then take it for a drive and see if any thing has changed. if so you probably have a badly worn tire. if no change have someone move the steering wheel back and forth wyle you are under the fornt of the car (dont forget to chalk the wheels) and see if any of your steering components are loose/moving. if nothing is loose and your tires are good try to bounce the front end. if you can really get the front of the car going up and down pretty easy you havce bad struts/shocks.
