    Just recently I had a very similar experience. I too noticed after about 20 miles, I would hear a roar from front left tire, also noticed the vehicle was pulling to the left at times. Once home, I went and touched the rims, and noticed my left rim was very hot, couldn't keep my hand on it. Once I removed the two front tires, I noticed the left calliper wasn't being released properly. Removed caliper and sliding bolts. Cleaned them thoroughly and added much needed lubricant on sliding bolts. Although the right side was fine I went ahead and did the same to it. Rotors and brakes still looked good, and front brakes are now working properly. Hope this helps.
