SOunds to me like you need to check your front wheel bearings. They are known to go bad and make those kinds of noises.

I'm with Adtcart on this one,hub bearings on FWD vehicles make LOTS of funny noises when the wear out and CV joints are usually blamed first.
If the sound is constant as you accellerate and decellerate and sometimes makes more noise turning one way more than another then I'd bet on a hub bearing. good luck
