I hear a slight scuffling noise only when the tire moves and the faster I go, the faster the noise gets. Does this mean worn bearings? How do I test?

    I think you have a tire failing. Get it checked out ASAP, if a tire comes apart you could lose control and crash, so get it checked. take it to a GM specialist or a tire shop for diagnosis.
