Either have a bad tire, or a bad CV joint in the front axle shaft. This should be looked at to determine what it is, as it could be dangerous.

All tires are brand new it sounds like it's coming from the passenger side

Yea ok, it have to be a CV joint or a wheel bearing. This needs to be checked out by a mechanic.
