Does turning make a difference? I'm assuming it's rotational and changes with speed and rpm? Not sure what whomp whomp sounds like though, any other ways to describe it? Not a scraping noise? Not much else there that rotates.

I've heard people describe wheel bearings this way before. We're these press in or bolt in bearings? If press, the new bearing may have gotten damaged during install. If you are certain it's coming from the front, get both wheels off the ground and spin watch tire while holding the coil spring with your hand. If there's a bad bearing, you'll feel it. Compare both sides.

I know the tires are new, but try moving them to the back. There aren't a lot of parts that rotate with road speed, so it's gotta be one of those or an axle. I'm going with bearing though.
