Question about Cars & Trucks
Your car is 20 years old any number of poor maintenance issues could have led up to it. However, the most common reason for loosing a wheel while driving is over-tightening rusty bolts. Pretty common when people don't use a torque wrench on bolts that have been corroded by years of driving in salt. The force can snap the bolts and send the wheel flying.

Wheel bearings are likly and I've changed many to solve this problem but it's esy to pick the wrong one with e vehical jacked and on jack stands suporting the car by the lower control arms ( normal ride hieght) run the car with a driver and listen to ti run , of course theres no load on the powertrain so there will be some lash ( power on to power decline ) cheack up. The roaring noise can be isolated by puting a sounding bar ( long metal rod ( sr=crew driver)) other against the part till the sound is rounded up rear but possible the carrier bearings in the (rear end) front drive. The axel bearings and on some units the carrier bearing thats in the CV axel on the block. Sounding rod will find and change the noisey part. Professional help is a good idea if you can't carry this out saftly
