low rumbling noise

After dealing with ABS, Brake and 4 x 4 lights I now discovered, upon deceleration, a low rumbling noise (like going over scarified pavement) coming from the middle to passenger side of the car. AT first I thought maybe a wheel out of round but noticed the vibration somewhat in the center as well. Can all this be attributed to a bad ABS sensor? Any help before heading to BMW dealership...ugh!

Sounds like it could be the Center Support Bearing. Normally this noise is worse at low speed.

Thanks Tim...in my mechanics hands now. He seems to think it could be a RF bearing but only time will tell. Appreciate your input.
