asiangear is an unknown quantity at this point
I noticed that when I am driving on the freeway, and I hit a turn that is somewhat sharp, I hear this oscillating "whining" noise coming from my car. I am guessing it has something to do with my wheels or axle when turning at around 70-90 mph. Is this normal, or does it mean that something is unbalanced in my steering or something?

Where exactly is the noise coming from..the wheel itself?? Might be a wheel bearing prob or if it was a imbalanced tire you would feel a little vibration thru your steering wheel..

no, i don't feel the steering wheel vibrating when I make the turns. As for the sound, can't really pinpoint, but sounds like it's coming from the front area where the tires are.

AZ325Ci is on a distinguished road
have you checked or had the wheel bearings checked?

the wheel bearings tend to make a whining or howling sound when they start going bad. you will want to replace these before it becomes a safety concern. you don't want to ruin your struts.
