Help....more road noise when turning right

I'm having a problem with hearing road noise when i turn right. i dont think its a tire problem either since my tires are brand new. i also have a slight steering wobble at 35-55 mph range. At 70+ it seems to go away or is much less. Does anyone know what could be wrong with it? Maybe front wheels need to be checked for balance (for slight wheel wobble), but not sure about the road noise when turning....

thanks for the help!

Could very well be a front wheel bearing going out. When you turn right, your are loading the left front wheel bearing, which will make it louder if it has a problem.

It's a bolt-in, sealed unit that contains the hub. Pretty easy to change if it's the issue.

If AWD the fronts are pressed in... The hub is often reused depending on difficulty of disassembly.
