Question about 2007 Chevrolet Impala
When driving the impala the tires have a roaring sound as if we have snow tires on it,but we don't. The sound seems to be getting louder for a while now.
I would suspect you have a bad wheel hub (bearing) assembly. The bearings will roar/growl when they start to go bad. I've seen the bearings actually disappear from the hubs because it got so bad. Also, the ABS light will come on when the bearings go bad. I would take it to a mechanic before it gets any worse. BTW, GMs are known to have wheel hubs go bad.
I hope I was able to help you out.

One of the front wheel bearings are bad. Jack it up and see if one is loose, the noise will usually change if you swerve back and forth while driving. Could also be a rear pinion bearing in the rear axle.
