Q: How can I tell if wheel bearings on one or more wheels need to be replaced? on 1997 Chevrolet Lumina

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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?
