Rumble in Front end

My 2004 Ford Focus ZTW sounds like it’s got snow tires on the front. It doesn’t. CV boots are in tack. Could the bearings be going bad? 85,000 miles on the odometer.

I would also suspect the front wheel bearings.

Is there a tack in your CV boots, or are the CV boots intact? There is a significant difference between those two situations.
