Any suggestions?

My 1993 BMW 325i is making a rather loud humming noise when driving below
60MPH. I had the inspection II service a few months ago so I am praying that it is nothing major! I had the tires rotated and balanced last weekend but the noise is still there

I have Dunlop A2 sports tires.

It appears that the noise is coming from the tires. When I make certain turns (can't remember if it is left or right) the noise appears to stop.

Sounds like a wheel bearing starting to go bad.
