Re: loud road noise after new bearings

Maybe the wheel bearing noise (or radio)masked the tyre noise a bit.

It's suprising how your ears start to pick up on things even when the noises were there before.
Not many 'non luxury' cars are what I'd call silent.

Maybe a quick check for play in the bearings is in order then providing it it's pretty quiet on smooth tarmac, I'd just keep an ear on it for a while and see if it gets worse.
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.
