i disagree with harofreek on getting a alignment althought you should get a alginment check or a ful alignment once a year
i think it could be a wheel balance issue? or Bad hud assembly

I got the tires balanced when i bought them, i dont think it has anything to do with tires or alignment or balancing as it was making this horrid noise previous to the purchase of new tires.

Im looking into the hub assy. one question, is the hub assy the same thing as the spindle? Thanx guys.

The hub assembly is the part that the wheel mounts to. It fits around the axle and carries the inner and outer wheel bearings.

In front wheel drive, a flexible axle spins the inner part of the hub assembly to which the drive wheel is attached. The outer part of the hub assembly is fixed to the steering knuckle. Wheel bearings are in between the inner and outer part of the hub assembly.

In cars without front wheel drive, the front axle is called a spindle. The spindle is a solid shaft that is fixed to the steering knuckle. The front wheel is attached to the hub asembly which rotates on bearings on the spindle.
