Bad wheel bearing. I do believe yours are pressed in. You can remove the spindle and take it to a shop and have them replace the bearing.

How do I change Wheel Bearing

First I need to know if it is a front or rear bearing. If its a front, you could do the majority of the labor yourself and save some $$. You need to remove the steering knuckle that has the failed bearing. Once this is out, find a shop that will press the bearing and hub out and press the new bearing in. This is not something you can do yourself, unless you own and know how to operate a hydraulic press. Once the bearing has been changed out simply reinstall the steering knuckle, and take your car to get an alignment. If you have a rear bearing they are very easy. Remove the wheel and brake drum, then remove the 4 10mm bolts behind the knuckle to unbolt the bearing. Reinstalling is just the reverse of that.
