Whirling sound coming from front end

Hey guys...for awhile now, I have had a "whirling" sound (best description) coming from my front end. It gets a bit more pronounced when accelerating.
I believe it started when I got my General Grabber's put on, but just not all that positive.
Any idea what is causing this? Anything I can check?
Thanks SO much for the help.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was a hub bearing.

You can jack up the front end and see if you can wiggle the wheels. But when mine went bad there was no play in them, just a grinding sound that got louder the faster I went.

Hub bearing or power steering pump is where I'd look first.

This couldn't just be the new tread on the road could it? Beefy tires have a nice hum to them. Is this your first time with the generic brand of bfgs?
