Re: wheel bearing fault or not?

Could still be a bearing.
Bearings don't always show play unless they are quite worn.
Tyres can make a noise on some road surfaces but that will come and go suddenly as you go onto different types of tarmac.
Can you identify if it's a front or rear, left or right side noise.
If you dip the clutch, does the noise change.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
