Will a cracked wheel well cause your car to make a humming sound?

No, but a bad wheel bearing could.

Possibly worn wheel bearings can create a humming or groaning sound.

It's most likely to be a wheel bearing if you jack ur car up an spin each wheel if you hear a rough sound it's a wheel bearing

There could be a few things that can cause this humming sound. It could be the wheel bearings rubbing, it could be the gears rubbing, it could even be coming from the engine pistons.?æ

With each wheel raised, Use both hands, one at 12 o clock position, another at 6 o clock position of the tire/wheel. Shake it, any movements? Should be none. Another way is, when driving, there is a "humming sound", it will get worse if you turn it to the right, or worse if you turn it to the left. The humming sound will go louder. If humming sound is stronger when turning wheel to left, RIGHT BEARING IS BAD. If humming sound is stronger when turning wheel to right LEFT BEARING IS BAD.

One would really have to hear it in order to determine for certain. Are there any particular conditions existing in which the humming occurs? Wheel bearings are a possibility.
