I would first check your front rotors.
- rust on the outter edge can make such a noise as it grinds against the caliper pads
- scrap off the edged of build up it has a big build up and you'll have some difficulty pulling off the caliper over it if that's the case. If you into removing the rotor which is easy you could grind off the edge with a hand grinder of the excessive amount but don't touch the surface.
- CV joint could be a problem if the boot ruptured and water got in and road debris which may be the problem if its only one side making the sound.
There is no easy way to determine as its a process of elimination. If you're getting if from one side only it makes it easier and jacking it up checking all I've mentioned is a start. I would not jump to the conclusion that is the CVT too quickly since you'd not be repairing due to the prohibitive cost.
PS: wheel nut should be torqued to 100 ft/lbs or slight more. If loose or warped rotors then various things can occur but I would not expect that sound unless rust is being aggravated by the warp and turning stresses.
