Default Roaring Sound

My 05 cruiser GT has 31,000 miles. It makes a noticeable roaring sound from the front end and kind of wobbles a little, mainly under 20mph. Then the roaring becomes apparent again above about 45mph, but sometimes goes away for a few seconds and then comes back. The sound is mainly like a roaring sound, and has a slight grinding sound to it too. It it not affected by the throttle or steering wheel.
I am wondering if it sounds more like wheel bearings or if it could be something else?

Hunch would be bearing - jack up car completely and try to wiggle wheel - if you have play, it's bearing.
