Wheel bearings or bad tires? on 1992 Acura Integra

Read the info on diagnosing bad rear wheel bearings. How do I distinguish between that and the possibility of a bad tire (right rear tire is pretty worn, left rear is in better shape)? The rumbling sound generally gets louder as the MPH increases. I hear the sound when going straight or turning left, but it goes away when turning right.

jack up the car and spin the wheel. if it is a bearing, then you will hear it and feel it. Roy

You can also switch wheels and if the noise follows the wheel, it's the tire. Zee
