Catastrophic failure possible? Yes? Likely? No.........YOUR LIFE , in list of priorities? ANY noise is somewhat a matter of perception, so for any of us to answer your question with a , sure , don't worry , would be careless (MY OPINION). Without seeing/hearing it first hand , couldn't make a judgement call. Many reasons for a bearing to be noisy , also lots of tire noises can be mis-interpreted as bearing noise. Maybe you might want to have it checked? someone in person............Happy? holidays?
