Default Wheel bearing problem?

How can you tell you have a wheel bearing problem? I've been hearing alot of road noise while driving but from the outside of the car when I had someone drive by I didn't hear anything out of the ordinary. I was thinking maybe it's my tires. Anybody have any input on this? Here's a picture of my tire, perhaps it's because they are low profiles?ImageUploadedByAG Free1368580934.246504.jpgImageUploadedByAG Free1368580953.796767.jpg

You should be able to jack the car up in the air. The wheel should turn freely and not have play. When my front bearing started to go the mechanic showed me how the wheel didn't rotate smoothly and made a crunching/grinding. If it is a bearing you don't want to let this go because eventually it will seize and you don't this happening when you're in motion.

Worn tires become noisy- a bearing will make a grinding noise or squeal, and you may experience pulling or vibration.

I bet it's the tires being worn.

Anyone notice sometimes when you break hard the wheel tries to turn on you?

Pulling to one side? That's not normal- I'd get your pads off and see what they look like. You can learn a lot by looking at pads. Warped rotors will also cause the car to shake/pull under severe braking.

Correct. Get the brakes checked.

If it tries to turn while braking, you may have a seized caliper
