    Rotate the tires and see if noise moves to rear. If so you know you need new tires unless rear have worn unevenly.

    I agree with rpc.also switch sides, X pattern, with tires so they roll in opposite direction.
    Should be able to feel/see uneven tread wear, rub tire tread front to back then back to front, as long as no steel showing from wear!!

    Did you replace the 'defective' bearing? May be the other side and usually is the opposite side from what one thinks!!
    Won't be the first time, nor the last, this has happened! Good idea to replace both anyway.
