Default Front Wheel knocking

The front right wheel is making a clicking like something is on the tire but there is not anything. This only happens in drive in reverse there is no sound. Also when the wheel knocking is going on these is a clicking in the dash but only when the knocking happens. Thanks for the help in advance

Jack up the front and spin the tires by hand. If one of 'em feels 'crunchy', time for a new hub/bearing.
