Well i had a bad right front bearing and i got it replaced and thought that would take of the humming noise or vibration type noise. Even though it does seem to drive better the noise is still there. The only guy told me was the inside of my front tires are pretty worn from being misaligned so long that the wobble could be creating the noise. Thats the only thing i know that it could be, everything else ive had checked or seems to be fine. Let me know some opinions on this, thanks.

it could be, once tires wear low, they do make a humming-like noise, also if they have a terrible wear pattern it would start to give you a hard drive.

Definitely could be the tires. When I first got my car a month ago I thought my rear bearings were shot but the rear tires were pretty worn. Had brand new Kuhmo's up front so I had some new one's installed at the back and the whirring noise is gone...

swap the fronts with the rears. See if the noise goes away.
