The wheel bearing should be addressed especially since it should a warranty issue. Don't put it off or you may miss the warranty period.
Who replaced the tires and checked the tie rods? Did they check the ball joints?
Does the steering wheel still shake from the vibration?
There is some skill involved to check, and have seen less experienced techs miss suspenson/drivetrain problems.
Having inner edge wear on the tires that were in front contridicts that the alignment is in spec. In my opinion.
Cv joint seems unusual for the age and miles on it, but seems like the symptoms fit.
Park the car, and have the wheels turned hard left,
push up and down on the passeneger side and see if you can re-create the noise. If so, get another person the can hold or see movement at the noise source.
