    well......a while back i bought wheel bearings because thought i was hearing one of them starting to go out. well...turned out, it was something else at the time. fast forward to now....while driving down the road....im hearing what appears to be tire roar....but cant quite figure out if its a bearing noise or just tire roar. i have 265/75/16 bridgestone dueler at revo's.....and normally they are pretty damn quiet. now...i havent had them balanced in a while, but im doing that tomorrow while i have the transmission flushed. i tried the "shaking the tire" deal....no in and out movement that i can tell. whats the best way to rule out whatever noise it aint?

    i should have added......in the summertime, i usually run with all my windows down and my tunes cranked...so maybe its pretty normal now that its colder outside and i keep my windows up alot more. maybe road noise/ tire roar is more pronounced in the wintertime.
