Exclamation A Deep "hmmm" Sound?

it was some small amount of snow and my ex girlfriend, i love power sliding with the cobalt. She ask me "can you drift?" and the answer was hell yea. i was going a little to fast and my car hit the curb pretty hard enough to bend my 2 right side wheels. Already got them replaced and lately, i noticed the faster i go turning left, i hear this low humming sound, in my front passager tire area. i can seem to find the problem so can anyone tell me what could be the problem? i am guessing its either the wheel bearing/hub assembly or the axle itself....what do you guys think?

With that kind of repairs I would have the alignment double checked again before worrying about anything else... It does not hurt just to make sure.

I actually the exact same thing just happen recently....if I was driving straight or taking a left hand turn there was a humming sound and the faster I went the worse it got. Went and got it fixed under warranty and it was the back right wheel bearing So I would definately start there becuase it sounds like the exact same problem I was having

This might seem weird but, I have seen this issue arise with rental vehicles I deal with and the problem turns out the rear tires have flat spots, Due to sliding or skidding.

the solution is to replace the tires.
The sound often sounds like its located in the front of the vehicle. I have sent several vehicles to the dealer for this sound thinking it was Trans, bearing, etc. related and it was the rear tires with flat spots that was the issue in each case.

So I would have a shop check your tires for this.
