Default Grinding noise

I have an '03 limited and there is a grinding noise that sounds like a brake rubbing,all the time. I've had a couple of mechanic's look at the pads and rotors and they are fine. We thought it was the tires rubbing on the shock housing,but I bought 2 tires for the front,and it still makes the noise.It sounds like it is doing it in time to the tires rolling. I would appreciate a diagnosis ,cause Nobody has a clue. By the way,don't bother telling me to go to a dealer,cuz I don't have the money!also by the way,it doesn't afect the drivability any.

Sounds like you may have a bad wheel bearing. I found this thread that might help.

How to tell which front wheel bearing is bad?
