Default humming sound coming from the front of the car

A slite rummble, and I meen slight, almost like your rolling your toung to say a spanish R. and the faster I go the louder it gets. Just wanted to see if this is a common problem before I have it checked.

If it starts maybe around 30 MPh, and changes with the speed of the vehicle, rather than speed of the engine, it may be one of your front wheel hubs.

If you turn the steering wheel ever so slightly in either direction while it'* humming, does the humming change or disappear?
