front wheel noise while driving. even after new wheel bearings where put in
tires have lots of tread.

All front bearings were replaced but the noise is still there while driving.
sounds like a sort of humm or road noise.

any suggestions on making it quieter.

the rubber trim on the driver doors is bad and halfway gone

Are you sure its not the tires?

Have you tried rotating them?

Okay, but did you also replace the bearing races inside the rotors? If the bearings were rough and they scored the races, you will still get the noise because the races aren't smooth.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say that you greased the new bearings before installing them. :naughty:

Have you tried swapping the front tires with the rears to see if the noise moves?
