If you have checked the bearings of the wheels ,prior to replacing does it fit well into the hub.
Did you try to rotate the individual wheels to check for noise .?
If not try this out.to confirm if there is any rubbing of the wheel assembly, the brakes pads.
Now How re the ccondittion of the tyres, some tyres havea very badd uneven rolling after a wear off. So if the noise is heard as a bearing sound , I think you must try to change the wheels, swap with the same model for a trial.. It must be done to clear our doubts and more so because you had suspected the wheel bearings as the noise resemble.
One the above has been confirmed wee can move on to the drive, the bearings on the shafts, the universal joints and the differential.
These can be checked from the outside ,the shaft, universal joints by an underside inspection. The differential and crown/pinion noise can be checked by jacking up the car and feeling the rotation for rough ness. Make sure the oils were changed or else use a slighly higher grade and see if the noise had lessened. If so the crown/pinion must be opened and checked. This might be difficult to be done at home because some assistance is required but it is for you to decide on the resources available to you.
I hope you decide with these tips.

Do you have the problem when you turn on the car as well? I had this same problem, turns out the alternator was going bad. A few months later the alternator went. After the alternator was replaced, the problem went away.

When the tires were balanced, were they checked for smooth tread ?
If they were on the back for an extended period of time, the tread could be choppy or uneven.
