Both front tires making a thumping noise and is worse when t make turns

Sounds like a CV joint problem if yours is a front-wheel drive car, the 'worse on turning' is a giveaway. It needs checking out as it will get steadily worse, and will affect steering noticeably as it gets worse. Dale

My 2003 ford F 150 has a roar that sounds like I have mud tires on, but I do not. It has gradually gotten worse. sound as if it is coming from rear of truck, but could be either front or back.

probably a front wheel bearing. Use a stethescope or cheap alternative (long screwdriver from wheel hub to your ear), Jack up wheels and compare noise to find which wheel is bad. OK?

Car makes noise like a dry wheel bearing only when turning right-rotating tires makes less noise for a while but is still there and steadily gets worse. Nothing is loose in the front end-noise has been...

Look again under the car. Check the CV joints on the side making the noise.

CVs are cover in a rubber "boot" and contain grease the lubricates the joint. Look to see if the boot is torn. If so the grease is lost and the joint will wear and make the exact noise you describe.

Start there as it is a simple and likely issue from your description.

Hope this helps

You could have a failed wheel bearing. Jack the rear up with the trans in neutral (chock the front wheels please) and try to spin the tire. it should spin fairly easy. If you feel grinding or the wheel is difficult to spin then I would say it is the wheel bearing.
