Question about Cars & Trucks
If your car is a front wheel drive, use two bricks or two 5 inch piece of a 4 inch by 4 inch wood to block the rear wheels. use a hydraulic jack, place it underneath the car, resting on the frame (usually the frame is a few inches from the front door, underneath the car just behind the front wheel) so as not to damage any weaker metal structure. raise one of the two front wheels and place a jack stand underneath the car, resting on the frame. Slowly lower the car and let the jack stand support the weight of the car. Repeat the step on the opposite side of the front of the car. turn the car on hold the brake and put it in gear.control the speed of the wheel with the brake do not give it any gas unless it is a standard. listen for the sound to see where it is coming from. The most important part is make sure the jack stands are level on the ground and the car does not rock, that is to say both of the front wheels are evenly lifted.

SOURCE: Grinding noise in front end
Had the exact same problem, on a used 2003 Protege ES with 82,000 miles that I purchased.
Started with the loud "road noise" I thought well maybe thats just the sound that it makes.
And then noticed that it varies when turning.
This will continue to get worse and then your abs light will come on when it gets bad enough to trigger the sensor..
It turned out to be a bad wheel bearing.
Take it to a shop and have an experienced mechanic check it out. Its repairable.

That's a hub bearing. Replace the one that's doing it. I'm assuming this 'roar' is coming from the front, NOT the rear.

You have outer CV joint bad on the right side, suggest you replace both sides with complete rebuilt axles you can get at any discount autoparts stores... some of them can even do the repair for you... replace seals, axles and align, be done with it and have a peice of mind... not to exepensive a couple hundred bucks...sometimes what happens is the rubber boot on the CV joint tears and throws its grease out every where around the wheel well, look for grease splatter, a good clue....
