i would still bet youre dealing with worn brake pads, theres an off chance it has a bearing issue but brakes are first thought. maybe has caused them to wear down quicker ie. holding caliper, restricted flex hose, or even economy parts from previous repair.

The tire itself does not have the proper inflation pressure for the vehicle. The tire has a MAXIMUM pressure on it. The proper pressure is on a sticker or tag, probably on the door jamb inside the driver's door. You might also find the tag inside the glove compartment or in the engine compartment near the emissions sticker.

I removed the whole knuckle and placed it on support then used a sledge hammer to knock the old bearing out. It is a simple job but would be easier with a bearing hub puller that I don't think anyone has.

CV joints yes look at the rubber boots for damage. You can get a replacement boot but if you do remove all the old grease to remove any dirt that is cousing your problem.

the small rubber boot around the piston is either off or has a hole, which let water in and rusted the piston to the cylinder
also can be caused by a hot caliper submurged in water

When checking to make sure noise is wheel bearings while driving vehicle at speed the noise is loudest (if possible) turn steering wheel back and forth enough to shift the weight of the vehicle from side to side and if it's a wheel bearing there should be quite a bit of difference in the noise.
If about the same noise check the wear pattern on the tires for flat spots or unusual wear pattern if there is rotate tires. If nothing still found jack up vehicle with all 4 tires of the ground. Use jack stands for this. Get some one in vehicle to run it at speed the noise develops, I use a long screw driver (2 feet long) as a stethoscope to find where noises come from. Try with and without 4 wheel drive if possible. Good luck cause noises can be a real pain in the b____.
