Does the noise come and go if you swerve to the left and right as you go down the road after you start getting that noise, it's more likely that it would be wheel bearings than tires, but what brand of tires were they?The way I diagnose wheel bearings is to put the vehicle up in the air so the wheels are on the ground and then drive it in the air then you use a mechanic stethoscope or a screwdriver up against the back of the knuckle and put your ear to it and you will hear whether the bearing is making noise.You can also take an audio or video recording inside of your vehicle with your phone and upload it to the site if possible or have not upload to YouTube and Link me to it so I can hear it

Mercedes Mechanic: Danny, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago
Know what I'm asking you is if you swerve hard left and right and you stay on one side for a couple seconds at a time just the noise come and go that's how wheel bearings can be diagnosed.
