I would get another opinion.It could be a tire noise that sounds like a bearing issue.
Possibly they weren't installed or greased correctly the first time.If the work is done,ask to see the ones removed.
Unsure what model that you have.
But if you can or have a mechanic or friend check the bearing by raising the wheel on the faulty side(safely and supported)with the hand brake off,spin the wheel fast while putting your hand onto the shock absorber that side.Any harshness in the bearing will be felt as a vibration in the shock.This is really only effective on a fwd vehicle.
Listen for a rumbling noise also,and check for 'rock' in the wheel by holding onto the wheel top and bottom and pushing/pulling at the top and pull/push at the bottom.Depending on the type of bearing,there either should be no movement or just the slightest feel of movement.
Finally while spinning the tires,check for any unusual wear or out of round of each.
Let me know your findings.Hope this helps you.

Yes, something is loose.
Stop driving immediately before you kill yourself or someone else, and have it taken to a qualified mechanic for repair.

My AVEO 2006 is making a humming noise, coming out in the middle engine compartment of the front or dashboard area. It start to be hear when speed goes between 55 kph and 80kph, and sounds like it is

The most common reason for a humming noise in the front area of your car would be a wheel bearing noise. I would start by having the wheel bearings checked.

There are two ways to check the bearings, one would be to jack wheels of the ground and check for free play in wheels, the other would require having a tech test drive the car, a good test drive by a tech can tell you if it is a wheel bearing problem.

A wheel bearing noise will get louder as the speed increases and the tone will change if the wheel is turned left or right.
You can try this test yourself, get car up to speed of noise and then listen as you turn wheel to left and then right and if the tone changes then i would suspect the bearing and next step is to find out which one, this would need to be done on a lift. good day

I'm hearing a grinding sound coming from underneath my suv. i have replace the brakes about 4 months ago

The sound could be a warning that the front wheel bearings are worn out...this should be a free inspection at your local brake/suspension/muffler repair shop...the bearing seals can deteriorate, and allow foreign objects (small dirt) to be exposed to the bearing...Please have this checked...the grinding probably increases with speed...the faster you drive...Hope this helps.

My daughter has a 2006 nissan sentra about 6 months ago she hit a curb with the front passenger side tire we replaced the tire rim but its making a loud humming noise any advise would be greatly...

That loud humming noise you are hearing is the wheel bearing. After hitting the curb the bearing took a hit and became a little wobbly and over time the grease has seeped out and started causing the humming.So just replace the wheel bearing and anything else that might be loose or damaged like the tie rod and ball joints. if those issues are not corrected it might happen again down the road. good luck and glad to shed some light on your issue

Shaking when driving. bought new tires in front 18 months ago. bought the car 3 years ago it was already lowered bought back tires six months ago had alighned two months ago started shaking after and tires...

get under the vehicle (use ramps) and check all linkages for movement pull push on the anti roll bar links, pull push on steering rack and pinion and linkages, any excessive movement, jack each wheel at a time, using a bar check the lower wishbone joints for movement, get the bar in the gap between the wishbone and lower part of the shock. and pull down, if any movement in ball joint up and down replace. while wheel on vehicle check for movement in bearing you will feel a tiny amount not much but pull and push on wheel with opposite hands on 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock and do the same at 9 and 3. now with both wheels off the ground but with the tyres still on, have some one holed one wheel and push pull on wheels each side there should be even movement between both wheels, if everything is fine with the the steering linkages and this dose not feel or sound right then this could be the problem also to add if the inside and out side of the tyres are wearing then the tyre pressure is wrong and needs adjusting to the right tyre pressure .

I have some either brake rotor or front wheel bearing issues? how do i tell the difference in a rotor issue or wheel bearing issue? i have some noise coming from my front drivers wheel, i took the pads off...

no recalls that I know of, but you can always call the dealer, give them the VIN number and they can tell you of any outstanding recalls.. if you have thep ads off in your hand an spin the wheel and you hear grinding noises, then I would say the bearing is bad.
