Question about 2006 Kia Spectra
To check how tight the front end is, place a jack under the lower arm of each front tire( make sur the car is secure and won't roll) and lift so tires are free of ground. Grasp the tires and try to turn them left and right. There should be minnimal movement. Check the steering components to see where the slack is, if any. If the seeering is tight have the tires checked for balance.

Tips for a great answer:
Sounds like you have a wheel bearing problem. Jack up the front end so wheels are off the ground. put your hand on the spring on the strut then turn the wheel with the other hand. If the bearing is bad you will feel the vibration/rough spot in the spring. Noise will get louder or diminish when you peed up or slow down.
