Post wheel noise

I just got my 97 s 420, and I here a "wheel" noise. Ive had the tires checked in terms of balance and air , but I still hear it. Some say it might be a bearing issue----what to do?! DC

If you can isolate which wheel it's coming from, switch it with another and see if the sound remains at that corner or if it followed the wheel. This will at least allow you to determine if it's the tire/wheel or the hub.
