MERCURY MOUNTAINEER TIRE PROBLEM

2002 Mercury Mountaineer • 117,000 miles

Hello, I have a feeling my front driver's side wheel bearing is either bad or going bad. Sometimes I hear noises like tire rubbing when turning and it only does it at certain speeds. Is there any sort of "test" on the road I can do to try and see if that's the case? I do notice that when I come off an exit ramp (wheels turned to the right) I can hear that tire rubbing sound but the vehicle has just been aligned so I know it's not that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is no test per say. An expierenced ear can tell.

It is a common failure.
