sounds like a bad tire, jack up each wheel and check for excessive side to side play may have a bad wheel bearing, short of that take it to a shop and have them check it out it shouldnt be to hard to find.

if a wheel bearing is really worn out it will feel as though your tire is loose when you grab the tire and move it, if you do not see anything wrong i would still recomend you take it to a shop and have it checked to find out what is causing the noise and wether or not it is safe to drive it.

A bad wheel bearing sounds like a humming or moaning/droning noise.

As BeJay stated, it shouldn't be hard to spot/find.
