Default Sound from front right tire

I have a 2000 S40 and about 2 weeks a noise started coming from the front right wheel, it makes the sound when you drive straight and when you turn the wheel to the right it gets louder. When you turn to the left it goes away. Any suggestions on what could be causing this sound? There is a slight vibraton coming from it i believe i would like to get some adivice on what might be causing this sound before i take it in.

Default RE: Sound from front right tire

Sounds like either a bad tire or right front wheel bearing.
First try swapping the tire to the back and see if the noise goes away.

Without looking at the car, it sounds a bit like a sticky caliper. Either that or your bearing is shot, but you would usually notice the noise a bearing usually emits over time (get's louder).

Either way, get this looked at before driving the car very far.
