you may have hit a few bumps when u were braking...it always seems that the bumps hit a lot harder on the tires when you are breaking. I could be wrong though....just an idea

I would agree that it is a flat spot if you locked up your tires. one way to find out is vary your speed if it varies along with your speed, it is just tire noise and will go away eventually.
If not, I would take a look underneath and see if I could notice anything that is blatanly broken. If you don't see anything take it to a shop.

How could he have locked his tires with ABS? Did you hit anything like a pot hole or a curb when you were braking?

Look for a nail or a pebble in one of your tires.
