Good bearings would not show anything but if the bearings are bad, you would feel vibrations as the wheel are spinning.
Struts do not cause noise when vehicle is running, especially roaring noises. Whether they are bad or not would require some testing. At the mileage and age of vehicle, the struts should be at least halfway through their lifespan.
If you have some basic tools and sockets, you should be able to replace the bearing yourself.
