A warped rotor usually only shows up when your braking. Are they new tires? Those high off the ground 4X4's with off-road tires give the same kind of sound and it's the tread pattern of the tire. Did your noise (roar) just start?

If none of those have been done. I would look in the direction of wheel bearings. Dose the noise diminish when turning left or right?

Not pull. Dose the noise Change of go away if your turning the steering wheel one way or the other. For the back just raise the tire off the ground an spin by hand you will know if one of those is bad. Recommend changing in pares.
