Default Wheel/Hub Bearing or Tyre Noise


I've read plenty of threads on this subject but many dont seem to have an outcome on them.

Eg: https://www.s2ki.com/s2000/topic/861...-around-60mph/

I bought my car from the UK, and brought it out here to Spain (i work in Gibraltar). When i bought the car i knew the bearing on the front right hand side needing doing, and used this to haggle the price down.

It sounds like wheel bearings, ive owned enough and replaced enough of them to know a dodgy bearing when i hear it, but soon as i got it out here i had the bearings replaced, and i still have the noise, turn left and you hear it get louder, and you can feel it through the wheel, but then i have heard people say oh its just tyre noise. Ive recently read that you have to replace the hub bearing at the same time, so it could well be this.

I recorded 2 videos today, its sounds a lot louder in the video than it does with your own ear, the video on the 2 lane autopia i roll the clutch down the slip road, the 2nd video once i get the car going im on the clutch all the way to the round about. see what you think, and thanks in advance.

I certainly can't tell from those vids. I only have experience with failing rear bearings where it is only obvious at slower speeds. After getting them hot with 5 - 10 minutes at 60 mph you have to slow to less than 35 mph where they make quite a bit of noise growling and clicking almost sounding like a dragging brake part.
