Hello I have a 98 jetta and I cant find out what is wrong. While I drive in low speed this noise coming from the front driver side I believe, starts as Im driving straight its like a wump wump wump and gets louder as I go faster and as I turn either left or right. the sound is not affected if I apply breaks and doesn't change on different road surfaces. I checked the cv joints there is no play in inner cv joint or damage to boot or a clunking noise. its not a humming noise either. Its almost like something is rubbing. I have new tires so that is not it. alignment is good and tires balanced. im at a loss at what it could be.If anyone has any idea id be interested to hear. thanks.

My first guess would be the tires. You could rotate the tires and see if it changes anything. If you could post a video of it, we might be able to give you a better solution. Its possible to get a defective tire. Check your fender wells for tire rub too.
