The noise may very well be a wheel bearing. Try jacking the car up and wiggling the suspect wheel. If there is play then check the wheel bearing and replace if necessary.

i jacked the car up & tried to wiggle it- it was stiff-no wiggle;then took tire off & the round steel ring with torx head bolts in it was showing. I tried to move wheel - not moving.?? two of the five torx screws are broke off?? still has bad noise coming from wheel??

If you spin the wheel while off the ground and compare it to the other side it will feel like gravel is in it if its bad usually. The torx screws are from manufacturing to hold the rotor in place during assembly. The reason there are multiple holes is so that there will always be two lined up with their counterparts on the hub when replaced.
