No, noise builds in volume with speed.
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No increase in noise when turning.
GMC Mechanic: Todd Audette, A.S.E Certified Master Technician replied 3 months ago
Sounds like a hub bearing is bad. They would do exactly what your concern is. Noise will increase with vehicle speed

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Hub bearings on rear? Replaced bearings on front already.
GMC Mechanic: Todd Audette, A.S.E Certified Master Technician replied 3 months ago
if you have replaced the front there are hub bearings in the rear
