Default Wheel bearing noise-not Corvette

Sorry for posting non corvette question but wanted opinions from more learned members.
Had new michelan tires put on my wifes suv, didnt have an issue first week or so probably listening to the radio but soon noticed hum coming from the car, sounded like tires. Took it back to Costco tire manager he said it had to be the wheel bearings. Took the car to local chain tire store who said wheel bearings were ok. Now I have two opposing opinions, can anyone offer a full proof way of checking wheel bearings. I replaced oem michelans for lower speed rated tire, differant from oem but still top rated tire.

Car is 13 infiniti with 65 k

Some tires are just noisier than others. See if you get used to it.

I'm betting it's the tires. Wheel bearing noise will change as you turn left or right, that's when you notice it most. A humming noise is probably tire related from my experience.
