    When my n/s front bearing was on its way out, it only made a sound IN a straight line at speeds above 30mph. Never made the sound when pottering around, turning at T junctions or roundabouts.

    Nail in your tyre? I like to start with the least expensive panic problem first.

    Have you done an emergency stop recently? you could have a flat spot on the tyre, this does that. hth.

    And check the pressures.
