All the usual suspects, of course, including warped brake rotors.

But, the very first thing I would do is check the “usual suspects”. In your case, I would physically remove both axle half shafts, check them for issues with the CV joints (which can be very hard to tell, unfortunately), and then CLEAN THOSE SPLINES, grease them up, and then retorque the axle nut.

Wheel bearings could definitely do this. When the axles are removed, I would carefully spin those wheels, looking / feeling for bearings that aren’t smooth.

After wheel bearings, brake rotors, axles half shafts / splines, your problem is likely in the gearbox.

I have a car with that noise / vibration, and I already know it’s the gearbox, unfortunately. You’re welcome to drive it, and see if it’s the same vibration.
