Mercedes e320 front passenger tire noise

I have been experiencing on usual sound when driving from the passenger side.
I changed the tires on my car but sound still persist.
Wheel bearings were checked sometime back by a mechanic.
The dealer states the car has the wrong tires on. Any recommendation on tires(quiet) for this car willl be very appreciative.

Some tires can be way noisier than the others. I prefer Michelin.
When we changed the tires on ML320 from original General to Eagle the noise level drop was quite noticeable.

Noise from only one side is probably not due to the brand of the tire, or the size as long as they are the same. Does it also pull in that direction? Or do you feel any vibration in the seats or steering wheel? Whether it does either of these or not, tires can just go bad after driving for some time. Plus I had a bad wheel bearing and one "good" shop missed it so don't rule that out.
