Front end vibration/noise

Ok, so I have no clue whats going on up there. I have a 2006 330xi and have a loud vibration and noise coming from what seemed to be the tires. I recently replaced the tires from RFT's to non-RFT's and that wasn't the issue, can definitley tell a difference in the ride though. It almost sounds like a tire is just flopping up and down, almost like a bent/damaged rim, but have rotated the rears to the front and the noise is exactly the same. Its noticeable when driving straight but as soon as I turn to the right it gets way way worse. I went under the car yesterday just to look at everything, mounts, half shafts, etc and nothing looks broken or worn. Actually looks really good for 115k. Only thing I can think of now is wheel bearings...since it seems to get worse when I turn right. Can anyone please help me with this issue?? If so, I will end up just doing the whole hub and not just the bearings.

It sounds like the wheel bearing to me. It's a shame these parts break down so soon on these cars. I have not had 1% of the problems with my Hondas that I have with the Bimmers, and I keep all my Hondas until the odo turns 180k mi. The only thing that really goes on them is the alternator around 150k mi. and I had 1 O2 sensor in the 6 Hondas I have owned. I have less than 30k mi. on my 2011 335i and I am at the dealer all the time. That's just not right..

id recommend changing both sides if you are going to do one. usually if one is shot, the other is on its way out too. at 115k seems like the car is doing great for you. not sure whats going on with Only1Harry as im currently at 66k and its been sooo much better than my e46
