Question: why am I having a vibration problem in r/f tire area>

When I start out driving there is a vibration in the r/f tire area. When I take right had turns it gets worse, however when I put the car into neutral the vibration and sound goes away. Everything underneath is tight and its not a wheel bearing nor axle. is the problem in the transmission?
