Loud roaring sound in front right wheel area. It sounds like my front driver wheel is flat and hitting metal..I had tires checked they are fine. It sounds like clunk, clunk and clunk..

Have you tried roating the wheels and putting the front wheels to the rear?It could also be a main wheel bearing that holds the CV joint shaft(outer)This bearing,common fault, will need to be pressed out as its pressed into the hub and cannot be removed by normal means.In some cases this part can no longer be obtained so a salvage yard would be the only option and must be brought as a complete unit.Wheel hub assembly.

You must replace wheel bearings in pairs to avoid loading the old bearing and, in time ruining your new bearing hub it is possible that you have already damaged the new hub

"only 99,000" on the tires? They must be great tires...I'm lucky if I get 60K out of mine!!! I have seen that happen anywhere from 1,000 miles and up...doesn't seem to be mile related.

SOURCE: Have a loud, roaring sound
one of your front wheel bearings need to be replace. it will give off a high moaning sound. but also check the surface of your tires first.uneven tire wear gives off a strange noise

THIS NOISE IS CAUSED BY A POSSIBLE WHEEL BEARING
WHEN YOU DRIVE THE VEHICLE YOU SHOULD HEAR A ROARING NOISE AND AS YOU GO FASTER THE NOISE WILL GET LOUDER AND WHEN YOU TURN THE WHEEL FROM SIDE TO SIDE THE NOISE WILL FADE IN AND OUT. THIS IS AN INDICATION THAT THE WHEEL BEARING IS BAD.
ALSO ANOTHER WAY WOULD BE TO JACK UP THE FRONT OF THE VEHICLE, BLOCK OFF THE REAR WHEELS SO THE CAR DOES NOT ROLL BACK ON YOU, THEN PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AND GO TO THE WHEEL PUT YOUR HAND ON THE STRUT BASE AND SPIN THE TIRE WITH YOUR OTHER HAND YOU SHOULD FEEL A GRINDING NOISE. IF SO THE WHEEL BEARING ON THAT PARTICULAR SIDE IS BAD AND IT NEEDS TO BE CHANGED
