well.. i sorta understand what your saying... but, i don't know if this will help
i had a problem when i turned.. and i heard a metal grinding sound from my back wheels.. so i got it checked out.. and it ends up being that my emergency brake ended up rotting.. and a few pieces fell into the rotor.. so i took a air compressor and shot some air through the rotor and the sounds went away!! but now i have no e-brake.. but thats ok.. b/c my car is auto! hope this helps!!
my car's doing the same thing i think in the back. like a clicking metal sounds at those speeds. sounds horrible. like the wheels gunna fall off but all the lugs are torqued right. i do however, have my stock 15" wheels on back rite now with 205 shit rubber cuz i blew out one of my tires on my 17" breyton's. it only happens with these rims. maybe its my ebrake, cuz its coming from the driver side, and my e brake only catches on that wheel

Ya, I had a lot of clicking noise near my back right wheel. I was like what the hell is that? So i just took the wheel of and looked around and didnt see anything and when i put it back on and drove around it was gone and i havent heard it since!
does the noise increase / get faster as you go faster? Does it not do it at higher speeds only because you can not hear it?
CV joint is easy to inspect - make sure of that - just look for torn rubber boots. Wheel bearing might be harder to inspect, but you can take the caliper off and turn the axle - should be smooth / silent.
