There is a noise in the front end, a roaring sound. Dealer said it is the tires. You really hear it when slowing down. You can here it when not breaking so I don't think it's the breaks. What could it be ... Bearings? Bushings? I don't think it's the tired cause you can hear the noise when barely moving

    Try switching the tires from front to rear and see if there is any change, that will tell you for sure. Usually a wheel bearing noise becomes audible when you reach about 15 mph or more.
