i had to have my passenger wheel bearing replaced. it never made the first howl, but was bad for thousands of miles. my avenger always let me know with that pleasant howling. after 5 replaced hub and wheel bearing assemblies on the avenger, you would think i would have noticed any such indications in my truck, but she never made any indication other than a horrible driving experience. i think justme84 is probably right.
btw- i very much earned all the work required on the avenger, not factory defects or anything like that.

Stock wheels or aftermarket? if its aftermarket you may need a hubcentric ring. Some if not most aftermarket rims the center hub hole is bigger than the hub of the vehicle. if you notice stock wheels on ALL cars have the center hole almost perfectly matched to fit over the hub of the vehicle. Thats what centers the wheel not the lug nuts. the lug nuts just hold the wheel to the car. They werent designed to center the wheel. My wifes SUV with 20s did th same thing and as soon as I installed the hubcentric rings it went back to smooth ride.
if its stock then it may be a tire issue. did you try to rotate the rims and tires?
