Does your vehicle make a whirring or growling sound as you go down the road. Does the noise increase in pitch and loudness as you increase speed? Does the noise change in loudness or disappear when you suddenly change lanes? Then you probably have a bad wheel bearing.
Like the ball bearings on the roller blades or roller skates you may have had when you were a kid, the wheel bearings allow the wheels to spin without friction. A hard bump or normal wear and tear can cause damage to the rollers, causing noise. If the bearing is allowed to fail, the wheel could suddenly stop turning causing your vehicle to suddenly and dangerous veer to one side. Or worse, the wheel could fall off causing lots of other damage.
